ISO files...?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
How do you guys get TMT3 or powerdvd to play ISO files?...I have been using m2ts and ts files with no issues in TMT3 and now for laughs I wanted to try out ISO files so I ripped a movie using dvdfab and converted the .m2ts file to ISO...but I can't get it to play or be recognized in any program?

Virtual clone drive or Daemon tools. Are you trying to play this through Win MC or Mediaportal etc?

+1. I use MediaBrowser + Virtual CloneDrive. I have Auto Play enable in the extenders + iso configuration page of MediaBrowser. I actually just got this working glitch-free yesterday. Had it semi-working on Friday (that's when I started playing with Media Browser) but I was getting a "Cannot Play Video" error before the video starts playing. Enabling Auto Play fixed that. TMT basically just recognizes the ISO as a regular Blu-ray disc after mounting with VCD.

mikinho also created a Mount Image WMC plug-in for people who use the default Movie Library in Windows Media Center.

Why are you ripping to ISO this way? Its literally a one click process. Put the Blu Ray disc in, load up AnyDVD HD and click Rip to Image. That's it. You don't need to go m2ts first. Then you have to use Virtual Clone Drive on the ISO.

I'm going to assume DVDFab which he uses does not support ripping to ISO's.

If m2ts files are working, why are you wasting your time with ISOs?

He may not have AnyDVD HD. Also, he may be trying to get rid of any extra soundtracks, commentary etc. I extract the best soundtrack and video only to save space..

Although I definitely hear you as the one click way is VERY convenient

All I can say to that is, you get what you pay for. AnyDVD should be a required app for any HTPC that is used for Blu-Ray playback, whether you're playing from a ripped folder, m2ts file, or iso image. Don't be such a cheapskate. You'll soon realize it's the best investment you will ever make for your HTPC.

A lifetime subscription to AnyDVD is probably the best single investment you can make for your HTPC. What makes it even better is that support is great.
