If you want to play ISO files inside Windows Media Center just follow the guide below.

Information Source:

1) Make sure Total Media Theater 3 or 5 is installed and integrated into Windows Media Center

2) Get ISO files to display in Windows Media Center Movie Library by following the linked post

2) Download and Install Virtual Clone Drive

3) Download and Install Media Center Mount Image

4) Set the Windows 7 theme to a Basic theme (non-Aero). Not having Aero enabled should not be an issue if this is a dedicated HTPC that is not meant to be operated outside of the Windows Media Center environment. Setting the theme to Basic eliminates potential balloon popups and desktop flashes when transitioning to playing video in TMT5 inside Windows Media Center.

5) Make sure any other programs that might be involved in launching playback are set to hide there status or progress.

6) Your ISO videos should launch from selecting the cover art inside Windows Media Center Movie Library.

Good info, but Media Browser and My Movies already do this (from inside Media Center).

Yep I know that MyMovies and Media Browser already have this capability. The info was for people that want to use the native Movie Library in Windows Media Center.

The question is why would you?

MyMovie and Media Browser take WMC to an whole new level of goodness that I wouldn't even want to go back to plain WMC.
