View Full Version : Every image I mount claims to be invalid/corrupt

11.08.2004, 04:55
Operating System: Windows 2003 Server
Burning Software: Alcohol 120% 1.9.2
Anti-virus Software: Symantec Corporate 9.0.338
DAEMON Tools Version: 3.46

Every image I mount (whether it is an SVCD or an application), Windows or the application claims the data on it is corrupt or unreadable. I know for a fact these images are not corrupt, and I've used IsoBuster to verify that they are not. Up until 2 days ago, everything was working fine, and nothing comes to mind that could cause this. :?

I mounted an ISO of Microsoft Office 2003 I had made earlier (I've used this ISO several times and never had a problem) in order to install it. However, when I tried to open the setup executable, I received an error stating it was not a valid win32 application. Assuming the image was corrupt, I opened up IsoBuster to extract the contents of the image - it extracted fine.

Puzzled, I then tried a few other software images I had backed up previously, I received the same or similar messages with all of them. Yet none of these images are corrupt. I tried mounting SVCDs, however, all applications were unable to play them.

I burnt a few of these images to a disk just to make sure I haven't gone insane :wink: and they were all fine. Still baffled, thinking Daemon Tools was at fault, I installed Alcohol 120%; oddly enough I received the identical problems. Ive uninstall, rebooted, and reinstalled both Alcohol and Daemon Tools several times. Now Im beginning to think there is conflict with something elsewhere. Ive spent hours trying to troubleshoot the problem, unsuccessfully I might add. Reinstalling the OS is a bit extreme and highly unnecessary.

I couldn't find any real relevant topics with an answer on the forum, has anyone experienced something like this before? If so, how did you resolve it? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Hi all,

I seem to have the same problem. It mounts .iso's and .bin's but when you use navigator to access the files, Windows says it can't read the disc, and that it might be having another file-format.

I never had this problem, until the 12th of August. And I don't seem to have SP2 installed yet.

Can someone help?

Unfortunately we don't know the cause of this behavior yet as we never could reproduce it. This maybe problem of some filter drivers (including antivirus) or storage drivers for devices hosting your images.
This problem is under investigation status.

100% same problem. Used daemon on my pc for 1 year + , now since rebuilding pc and reinstalling windows 2000 it wont work, eveyr single image gives errors while installing/watching. If i burn the images they work 100% fine. Installed apsi layer, removed all burning software, tried alcohol 120% (dame problem). Nothing fixes it.

Dawn annoying i hope someone has a work around :)

Well, if you re-installed your OS, maybe you installed some newer drivers on your "old" OS, you didn't re-install (yet)? E.g. some IDE drivers, RAID or something?

Never had this problem myself, surely some update u all mising!

Just go to Device Manager and check if there is any conflict or missing drivers (yellow ! or ?) and install new atapi drivers or 4.60 ones! microsofts own are not worth trusting! (is anything from microsoft worth trusting?)
