Back when I had windows XP when I had magic disk installed I could right click an iso file and mount it. in windows 7 I don't get this option. how do I add this option to the right click menu?

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

When you boot your computer, is magic disk starting and sitting in the system tray?

This link may offer some insight.

I'm using Windows Vista Business and Magic Disc and unfortunately do not see that option when I right click an ISO Image.

I'm sorry but I don't think I'm gonna be much help.

Maybe someone else has another idea for this option.

Sorry.

given what people are saying I guess there is no way to edit the context menu for specific files. that's fine. magic disk works fine. this was just a for my convenience question.

RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB

Yes, you can edit the context menu for specific files...it's in the registry. But if it's not already there, you wouldn't have a clue how to make it (the keys and values). For example, if there was something in your context menu you don't like, you can delete that key from the registry so it will be gone. But making one from scratch would prove to be more difficult. Understand?

Like I said, Virtual Clone Drive works for me. And you can mount ISO's using the right-click context menu. If you want to stick to Magic Disk, that's fine. But now you know what I recommend. :huh:

Cheers! :huh:

I wonder if the registry keys from XP would work in 7? oh well I'll give Virtual Clone Drive a try see if it works for me. thanks for the feed back.

You need to install MagicISO in addition to MagicDisc. Magic ISO is what adds the context menu. I installed MagicDisc first and am not sure what will happen if you install MagicISO first.

I made an account just to respond to this since it was the first Google search result and it had been driving me crazy ever since I reinstalled Windows and there seemed to be no answer easily available anywhere.
