Obviously you are mounting an ISO, so I won't even ask. But hey, I won't judge, lol. Is this an issue with a certain game or can you mount other ISO
files? I have a windows machine with XP on it that I used to use for games, but my main computer runs Linux, and I haven't messed with Windows since
XP. I couldn't even tell you what Vista looks like, much less 8. And the version of XP I do have was XP Black. Or actually a further refined version
of it, but my point is that I cannot help you with specific Windows issues of this nature.
But the first step is identifying whether it is a system problem, meaning no ISO's will mount, or if it is a game or corrupt ISO problem. Did you
check your MD5 sums after download? Usually this is not necessary, but it might tell you that something went wrong. But if this is multiple ISO's
then it is less likely that your file is corrupt, although it is theoretically possible for this to occur, and could point to a problem somewhere
else. So if it is just a certain ISO file then I would see if you could download it again. If it is multiple files from different sources that won't
work, then it is probably useless to re-download.
Now Daemon Tools might be the problem. I've used it in the past but I cannot remember if it had a free version or was subscription. Obviously if a
trial ran out or whatever perhaps something is up with that. Someone said you could directly mount an ISO on Windows 8, and that is what I would try.
See if it is your software or the files or whatnot. Troubleshoot by seeing when the problem occurs, and how broadly it occurs, meaning try different
combinations to see if anything shows itself.
