Hello,

 

Are the accompanying .mds files that comes with .iso files used for anything besides when you are burning the image file to disc? For example, when mounting an .iso file in software like Daemontools, are there ever any advantages of clicking on the .mds file instead of just on the .iso file?

If I never plan on burning an image file to disc, only mount it for using it on the computer, is there any point at all in keeping the .mds file?

Thankful for any help from people who knows the answer to my question for sure. Thanks for reading!

Why is nobody replying? I take it that this question is too advanced for anybody on this forum?

You can't blame anyone for not replying if they don't know what you are talking about.  That said, this is what I found on .mds files:
