I have the programs PowerDVD 11 and Arcsoft TotalMedia Theater 5 that can play 3D movies.

However, my 3D blu-ray movies are in .iso format.

How can I get PowerDVD 11 and Arcsoft TotalMedia Theater 5 to detect the .iso files so that I can play the 3D movies?

I am having trouble on how to get it to play .iso files.

Thanks.

ISO files are disk images. You need to extract them with something like PowerIso or some other disk imaging tool. BTW - this is a not an expert opinion, so I could be 100% wrong.

So .iso files cannot be played? This is funny because I have spent so much time converting blue-ray folders to iso . Now I have to convert them back.

You don't have to convert them for TMT5 you just need to mount them. Download Virtual CloneDrive and that will do the trick (at least this works for 2D ISO's).

It works for 3D iso's, too, in both TMT5 and PowerDVD11. If your system is set to autoplay a disc, TMT5 or PDVD can start as soon as the iso is mounted - very simple.

Daemon Tools Light is also a free utility you can download and use to mount .iso disk images to play in PowerDVD and other software players. Once you install that utility, it will be clear how to actually mount the .iso as a drive.

Yup...works great with TMT 5 in either 2D or 3D.

DVDFab Virtual Drive is what I used to use. It's a free. Once installed, you just right click on the .iso and "mount to (drive letter, usually H: )" and then when you open up TMT5, it'll be the drive or icon on the far right (of the 3 icons that would be displayed - BD player, HDD, Virtual Drive)
