    ISO mount error (ignorable though)


    Hi there

    really strange error -- it only happens on a PC with an actual physical DVD drive. If I mount an ISO I get a mount failed type of error although the iso does mount and is 100% accessible.

    I can't re-produce the error on a machine that doesn't have a physical DVD - and even if you attach an eternal USB DVD drive the error doesn't appear.

    Seems it only occurs when physical built in hardware is present. The error though is ignorable.

    (Running W10 pro x-64 latest build).

    Cheers

    Hi... It might be your optical drive ( DVD ) is dying, they don't last long . Also, you could try to see if your optical drive has a firmware available from the manufacturer . And lastly try re burning a new iso copy on a different type disc

    Hi there

    The error isn't on the HARDWARE DVD drive --it's if I try and mount a "Virtual ISO" ==i don't need to have anything in the DVD drive. Actually being able to mount "Virtual ISO's or ISO files created on HDD's is an excellent feature.

    I'm ignoring the error for now as it doesn't actually cause any problems.

    Have you reported this phenomenon with the Windows Feedback app? It's certainly interesting.

    Hi, it works for me, and I have a physical drive..
    Works mounting an iso via explorer, and other 3rd party tools.
