How does one use ISOs?
 
Hello Everyone!

Just wondering what you do with ISOs once you have them.

Thanks in advance!

Take care!

Hmm... well, it really depends on the type of ISO. If it's *GASP* a PSX ROM!!!@#!@# */GASP* then a good emulator like http://www.epsxe.comePSXe</A> will support it natively. If it's anything else, you'll probably want to mount it with a virtual drive utility, like http://www.daemon-tools.cc/Daemon Tools</A>.

Thanks Icenine0 !

Well, I have PC Eninge Iso and Amiga Isos.I don't know if that qualifies as GASP/PSX since I don't know what that is. Will ePSXe handle both?

From what I have learned so far, an ISO is something like a zip file, but a little more complex Therefore you just need an emulator that can read/see it?. Sorry, I wish I was smarter!

Thanks Icenine0!

Just make sure that they're ISOs you made with your own BlackDisc and not downloaded ;).

An ISO is an image file of a CD. In emulation they're kind of like ROMs, only of CD games instead of cartridge ones. For example, if you had an ISO of an Playstation game, then you could use ePSXe to play that same as you would ZSNES for any SNES ROM.

Ok so all I need is ePSXe which serves as the engine, that runs these Isos (roms as per the example)?

I heard something that I need to render these to disc, but if I have them imaged onto the hardrive, I can just run them as if I were running an emulator running roms, right?

I think I'm getting warmer (thanks to you guys no doubt!)

If they're ISOs from Playstation games then yes, but if they're from other games then you'll need a different emulater.

Thanks Gentlemen! I think I'm almost there.

I just figured out what the acronym for EPSXe is. So....

What will play PC and amiga ISOs?

This may very well be my last question !

You've all been most kind and helpful!

Not sure, but you are better either bruning them to a CD, or moutning them as a virtual drive with Dameon Tools (as icenine0 stated)
