    gBurner is fairly late to the game of virtual drive mounting and management.  I use the MagicISO’s freeware MagicDisc… not because it’s necessarily the best, but because MagicISO (and a few other ISO-makers) have two ways of creating an ISO, one of which is not really proprietary, but it’s almost as if it were because of how it confuses many ISO mounters and decoders.  So by using MagicDisc as the ISO mounter in my system tray, I’m able to use any and all ISO formats… including MagicISO’s oddball one.

    gBurner, it seems, is about the same as MagicDisc, though I’ll bet it can’t handle the oddball format… few ISO mounters of gBurner’s type can.  Again, that’s the only reason I use MagicDisc; and will likely not use gBurner… nice, though it seems to be.Nice tip, though.______________________________Gregg L.
