Portable image/ISO mounter

jahvascriptmaniac - May 30, 2007 - 10:08am

Well the following post : http://portableapps.com/node/1774 seems to be closed, so I'll re-open it here Smiling

I think building an app that would mount iso's is possible, because the following app :

http://www.yadabyte.com/Yadabyte_Portables.php
(look for Yadabyte Disk)

can mound an encrypted disk, and I don't think it requires administrative rights.

Note : yadabyte disk is marked as "temporarily unavailable" bu once I managed to download it - not the source code however ;( - by hitting random files - it's file number 56 or something like this Smiling

I've contacted the author and I'll se if he can send me the source code.

I was just...

Thinking about that yesterday, I was just looking for a good open source one, I'll look into it. It's especially handy for things like Linux and the OpenCD.

I don't know about open

I don't know about open source, but UltraISO works portably and can mount ISO images.

Mounting a filesystem

Mounting a filesystem requires admin rights. Period.

Vintage!

I use MS Virtual CD-ROM

I use MS Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel v2.0.1.1

Works great with Admin rights and I just carry the driver on the usb to install as needed -

Thats...

Okay for me, I usually only need to use an image at a friends house, who would have admin rights.

is this entirely correct?

I mean doesn't the file system from a usb drive mount without admin privleges? Wouldn't it be possible then to mount a virtual usb-cd-rom drive without admin priv?

Real Yes. Virtual No.

Virtual CD requires a driver. Which requires admin privs. Period. End of story.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

fair enough
