    ISO to Disk Extractor

    Looking for a tool that will extract a ISO file to a hard drive?
    I find several that extract to CD's or DVD's, but no reference of to the hard drive.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave,

    WinXP_Virtual CD, a free download from Microsoft might be what you are looking for. Here's the contents of the "Readme.txt" file which is dated since the new version 2.1 is now installed via an .exe file. Notice the very last statement which describes what I think you are wanting to do:

    <hr>Readme for Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel v2.0.1.1

    THIS TOOL IS UNSUPPORTED BY MICROSOFT PRODUCT SUPPORT SERVICES


    System Requirements
    ===================
    - Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional

    Installation instructions
    =========================
    1. Copy VCdRom.sys to your %systemroot%system32drivers folder.
    2. Execute VCdControlTool.exe
    3. Click "Driver control"
    4. If the "Install Driver" button is available, click it. Navigate to the %systemroot%system32drivers folder, select VCdRom.sys, and click Open.
    5. Click "Start"
    6. Click OK
    7. Click "Add Drive" to add a drive to the drive list. Ensure that the drive added is not a local drive. If it is, continue to click "Add Drive" until an unused drive letter is available.
    8. Select an unused drive letter from the drive list and click "Mount".
    9. Navigate to the image file, select it, and click "OK". UNC naming conventions should not be used, however mapped network drives should be OK.

    You may now use the drive letter as if it were a local CD-ROM device. When you are finished you may unmount, stop, and remove the driver from memory using the driver control.<hr>

    If that does not work out have a look at THE DAEMON Tools HOME.

    Well I too a good look at my Roxio 8.0, and it has a "Disc Image Loader" ( Virtual Drive) which did just what I needed.
    Thanks to all that responded.
