    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.

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.

HELP ME


hi there my friend,

we have the hard way and then we have the easy way...

the hard way is to bootup with your bootable xp cd .follow the installation guide ..then.put in your key when you get the chance to ..and finish the installation. then apply service pack 2 to your installation .. and you're done...

the easy way would be to make a Slipstream Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD....which you can use each time you need to fix your system.

1 - Download the (full) "Network Install" of the Service Pack (English version [266 MB]), and save it to a directory (folder) on your hard drive (in my case D:\XP-SP2). Other languages can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Web site.

Note: do not use spaces in the folder name!

2 - copy your Windows XP CD to your hard drive. Just create a folder (I used \XP-CD), and copy all the contents of your Windows XP CD in that folder.

3 - , open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > cmd), and go to the folder where you downloaded SP2 (cd \foldername). Type the command: servicepack filename /integrate:drive/path. In my example the command is WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU /integrate:D:\XP-CD.

Extract SP2 files

If you get the error:

This service pack can't be integrated error

This is caused by the fact that your Windows XP CD contains updates that will be automatically installed when you run setup. This type of CD's will usually be from larger OEM suppliers (like Dell, HP, or others).

You cannot use this type of CD to create a slipstreamed SP2 install.

First, the files will be extracted, and next they will be integrated in your Windows XP files:

Updating Windows Share

When ready, you should get a confirmation. Windows XP Service Pack 2 has now been Slipstreamed into your original Windows XP files.

Slipstream Completed


Creating a Bootable CD

For this part I used IsoBuster and Nero Burning ROM 6

After you install IsoBuster, you can choose to use only the product's free functionality for what we want to do, IsoBuster will look like the image below (you need to have your original Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive).

Start to extract the boot loader from the original Windows XP CD. Using IsoBuster, select the "folder" Bootable CD, and right-click Microsoft Corporation.img. From the menu choose Extract Microsoft Corporation.img, and extract it to the folder on your hard drive where you have your Windows XP files (D:\XP-CD in my case).

Extract Boot Image

Next, start Nero Burning ROM, and choose CD-ROM (Boot) in the New Compilation window. On the Boot tab, select Image file under Source of boot image data, and browse to the location of the Microsoft Corporation.img file. Also enable Expert Settings, choosing No Emulation, and changing the Number of loaded sectors to 4 (otherwise it won't boot!)

Nero Boot Settings

The ISO tab should be configured correctly as shown below:

Nero ISO Settings

If you have an older version of Nero you won't have the option Do Not Add ";1" ISO file version extention under Relax ISO Restrictions. You won't be able to boot your new CD, so update Nero!
You can configure the Label tab to your liking, I would however recommend that you keep the Volume Label the same as on your original Windows XP CD. Here are some (English) Labels:

* Windows XP Professional: WXPCCP_EN
* Windows XP Home: WXHCCP_EN
* Windows XP Professional OEM: WXPOEM_EN
* Windows XP Home OEM: WXHOEM_EN

Nero Label Settings

Next press New, and from the File Browser window, select the files and folders from your slipstreamed location (in my case D:\XP-CD). Now drag & drop the selected files in the ISO1 window.

Copy Files

Next, burn your new CD.

Burn

You now have a Bootable, Slipstreamed Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD!

Hi

It seems VEO went out of buisness or their site has been hacked. (Their http://www.veoproducts.com/ is now a weird search engine).

It is hard to come by the drivers now, but a Nero Image and ISO Image is hosted here
Nero Image - http://www.nztechie.com/downloads/ISO/VeoInstallCD.nrg
ISO Image - http://www.nztechie.com/downloads/ISO/VeoInstallCD.iso
NB: About 154MB. You need to extract the CD Image file or burn it to CD using appropriate software.
The install CD claims compatibility with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP. It should be compatible with Windows Vista when compatibility mode is used.
