Windows 10: Problem trying to mount image file (iso) from an audio CD.

    Problem trying to mount image file (iso) from an audio CD.

    The thing is that since a few days ago, I can't mount any iso file which was made from a music CD. I can mount any other iso files (video DVDs, software), but music cds. This is what happens:

    That's the message I'm getting, but the image is ok as long as I tested it on a non Windows 10 computer. It doesn't work either using any virtual drive software. Any clue?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, have you tried opening it with - for example- 7-zip (free) to see if you can view the content?

    Hello. Yes, I just tried. Also, using WinRAR. Nothing works :/

    If you put, for example, an iso on a USB flash drive, and try accessing exactly the same file on your two PCs, does the same thing happen? I.e. exactly the same file.

    Also get an md5 hash (or similar) for the file on both systems and compare the result. This will tell you if they are reading the file differently.

    Yes, the same exact file provides the same error in two computers with Windows 10. Other file, also an audio CD image, does the same thing in both computers. When doing it in other computer without W10, it works.

    I don't have md5 hash for any.

    Hi, you need to install a small program HashMyFiles: Calculate MD5/SHA1/CRC32 hash of files
    That's for Windows. I can't advise on Linux (e.g.)

    Breaking news. I have the md5 for one of the images. When checked with md5summer everything is correct, but windows is not able to mount it. :/

    Ok, so the md5 is the same viewed from both PCs, but Windows still can't even open it with 7-zip. Hmm.

    Presumably your Windows PC can read other files on whatever device the iso file resides, can it?

    I'm now wondering what library file Windows uses to read iso files, and whether that's common to whatever is used to mount it, to winrar and 7-zip. However I suspect that is sthg within each utility.

    Is there anything useful shown in the event viewer?

    Suggest you run SFC /Scannow from an elevated command prompt.

    Event viewer doesn't seem to show anything related.

    sfc /scannow says that everything is ok.

    Really weird. I just re-asigned explorer.exe to open iso files. But what is really weirder is that I still can open isos made from DVDs, or software isos.

    EDIT: Ok, more weirdness. The images can be readed using the AIMP music player. I can listen to them wthout mounting. Amazing.

    AIMP has a plugin / support for iso's. (I might have a look at that one..).
    I'm beginning to think this isn't a Windows problem per se. Maybe how you generated that particular iso that you can't read? Try creating an audio disk iso by other means.
