    Mr. Worldvet, i really appreciate your suggestion but i think you helped me over something else by mistake. there is nothing to with my windows files. let me explain, my friend gave his own cd of his recent pictures but cd contains a file named "my pics.ISO" an image file, i know it is risky to play with SCSI of my PC so i simply asked for any software which can directly extract its contents without mounting Virtual CD-ROM like "imagedrive" provided by Nero7Ultra Edition. anyway thanx LOLITA ill try it now...

  • PuneetBhagat Jul 27, 2008

    yeah PowerArchiver works great. at least iso, bin files can be extracted easily but program hangs when i opened nero image file i.e. ".nrg" and other type of file ".mdf" also not supported, so please suggest a program which covers that part of files.. thanx

Yes, you can do this. All you need is to copy and paste them into a folder on your hard drive.

    First, check to see if you have this folder on your hard drive.
    c:\windows[where 'windows' is the windows directory, it could be winnt]\i386.

    If c:\windows\i386\ does not exist, do the following.

    BTW, to check Right Click My Computer, choose Explore, this will display the contents of your hard drives, select C: and then see if your default windows directory is c:\windows or c:\wnnt

    If this subFolder of Windows does exist you can copy your CD's contents into it. If it does not, click on the windows directory and click on the File menu item, then choose New and then Folder, type in the name for this new folder as i386.

    First part is now done. If you have any questions or get stuck, post to me now using the comment box below.

    Insert your CD/DVD into your drive bay. When the Welcome screen pops up click on the big X in the top right corner of this window. If prompted to actually close this window, choose Yes.

    Now, move over to the Explorer window you were just in and click on the drive letter that identifies your CD/DVD, Normally this is D but could be something else. Just select the drive letter, now drop the Edit menu down and choose 'select all', then drop the edit file down again and choose copy.

    Now, move over to the C: drive and click on the folder you just created or found called I386. Once this folder is highlighted, click on the edit menu and select the command Paste. This will paste the contents of your disc to this new folder.

    Wait for this to complete, it could take several minutes. If the i386 folder did already exist and you are prompted that "A file being copied is older than the one that already exist, do you wish to replace it" (or words to this effect) choose NO. Always keep the newer file.

    The next time your system asks for your Windows disc, point the software to the I386 folder and you should be fine. Windows will now continue to look here for source files.

    Any Questions, Concerns, misunderstandings? use the comment box below to ask me and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

    Regards,
    Worldvet

When I Donloaded Sniper Ghost Worrier It was in .iso format i opened it with Israck the PROPHET folder is not extracted WHY?


You don't extract the contents in any iso files in the way you are doing, you just burn image iso files to an CD/DVD using any image burning software eg imgburn, nero, magicISO, etc....and install the software from the burned CD/DVD.

or

You can load the iso image with a virtual Drive,(ie if you virtual Drive support iso format), and install the software from the virtual Drive.

Hope it helps.

After downloading the software in a computer, how to in stall the software in the computer


What is the format of the downloaded files? Is it in an image, eg. iso, img. daa...etc... or is the files compressed in a Zip, Rar...etc... format?

If it is in the image format, you can use a 'virtual drive' which support the image format to load the image to do the installation. Or your can burn the the image files to a CD/DVD and install the software from the burned CD/DVD.

If it is a compressed file, you have to extract contents of the compressed file to a folder and look for a setup/installer.exe in the folder and install the software.

Hope it helps.

How do i activate windows xp home without buying it .because i did it last time but had to reinstall windows


windows xp ..do not need any activations on installing ...only need the right cd key on the copy ....but ..when you trying to update ...it will find if the copy is genuine or pirated ..and make a few problems....so ...either stop the automatic updates...and go along with them ...or when the genuine advantage program kicks in and block a few features with that desktop reminder ...that you are a victim of piracy ....just go to system 32 ...search for a file named WgaLogon.dll and rename it into something like WgaLogton.dll ....just change a character and it will forget the world it is in ...

I want a software with NRG files to download


A .nrg file is a proprietary CD image file format used by Nero Burning ROM, a utility suite made by Nero AG, to create and burn ISO 9660 CD images.
Other than Nero Burning ROM, a variety of software titles can use these image files. For example, Power ISO, Alcohol 120%, or Daemon Tools can mount NRG files onto virtual drives for reading.

How to make bootdisk from .iso image


You need to use ISO burning software. Nero has built in features for that, winiso can do it as well, or even microsoft windows xp.

For just windows XP you can download a tool and burn directly. You do however need to have Windows XP SP 2! <--- Important
