View Full Version : "Unable to mount image. Invalid image file"

I have some DVDs that were made of our home videos. I want to make backup copies so I used Daemon Tools to create disc images of them. I tried both mdx and mds/mdf formats. The disc image generation appears to work perfectly, but when I try to mount the image I get the error message "Unable to mount image. Invalid image file".

Any suggestions?

Which version of DAEMON Tools and which OS are you using ?

If the DVDs were recorded in a standalone DVD recorder they're maybe non-standard
...or DAEMON Tools doesn't handle them right ;)

Either way, if you like, you can try to create remastered standard ISOs of the DVDs with DVD Shrink 3.2:
DVD Shrink 3.2 (http://www.videohelp.com/tools/DVD-Shrink)
DVD Shrink .info: v3.1 Full-Disk basic tutorial / tutoriel de base (http://www.dvdshrink.info/fulldisk_basic.php)

After you hit the Backup! button select "ISO image file" as backup target.

Thanks for the suggestion. For now I have simply copied the VIDEO_TS directory and its contents. When I burn it back to a DVD-R it works, so I'm happy.
