    i cant figure this out and i need help. i must be a retard :hsd:

    here's the story

    i download rosetta stone. downloads as two directories. dvd1 (4.33gb) and dvd2 (4.31gb). i look in each directory and there are .iso files everwhere that look like the gay purple .rar archives. apparently i am able to extract these.. do i extract them first?

    so now i read the .txt and it says

    "INSTALL:

    Burn or mount.
    Run the setup.exe file from the DVD2/APPLICATION directory.
    Insert the DVD containing desired language and run the Rosetta software."

    i downloaded magic iso and daemon tools to try to figure this out.

    so now what? i have no idea what the hell i am doing

    please help me! :wavey:

    Daemon Tools will allow you to mount them as virtual CD/DVD ROM drives

    UltraISO will let you open up the ISO and look at files, extract them etc, as if it was an archive

    Be careful with the daemon tools because you need to opt out of the spyware if you install it.
    I like MagicDisc and Alcohol 120

    True, but free + no spyware is better than free + spyware, so in my book the Microsoft tool wins.

    there's no spyware in daemon tools. During installation, don't select the toolbar ftmfw.

    daemon tools supports additional features that I like. Such as the ability for me to do cd-less games without hacks.

    If you have WinRAR and you just want to extract something from an ISO, then WinRAR will do the job
    ISOBuster, UltraISO, MagicISO, and the alike, will allow you to extract as well as add files to an ISO...well maybe not ISOBuster but it can extract for sure.

    mkdir a
    sudo mount -o loop image.iso a

    Simple as that.

    how about a single .exe that doesn't require any sort of installation, to read an iso?
