    Default .img-files support (rename IMG->ISO?)

    Have been looking all over the site for info regarding support on .img-file.
    An exact search on .img I can't do.
    Anyway, I guess the topic of support to IMG-files have been discussed
    on earlier occassions. I did see a thread where it was explained why
    Daemon does not support img-files, but can't trace that msg anymore.

    Whilst scrolling thru numerous forum-messages on other Internet-sites,
    I discovered one single posting where a user advised to simply rename
    the .img to .iso and then mount that file.
    Sofar it worked fine with him. Much easier/faster than installing additional
    software such as Isobuster.

    After making a safetycopy of an .img-file I tried this out and indeed,
    Daemon perfectly opened the .iso file (a movie-DVD).
    I installed Isobuster to compare the output files (Daemon vs Isobuster)
    files and sizes, they are 100% identical.

    The solution is sooo simple.
    It leaves me with the question: are there any problems i might be
    encountering, things i should pay special attention to? any limitations?

    Thanks

    You could have problems if your image is from a disc with more than one session or more than one track.

    Wonder how is ISOBuster is handling this. I like Daemon and hope .img
    support will be added, so I won't need to install addl software to do the
    job.

    If img is single-track you can mount it already in dtools. As Nars said, you will have probs if it is multi track or multi session.

    I am sorry: am no expert. What is meant with a 'single-track'?
    Let me explain it from my side:
    I have 1 file, so-and-so.img of abt 4.5gb
    This one I rename to so-and-so.iso and mount that in Daemon.
    In total it consisted of VIDEO_TS\22 files.

    But as said,I am not an expert - what do you mean with a 'single-track'?

    Audio cd's are an example of multi-track disc. DVD's are single track by design, so mounting it will be fine.

    Thanks. Would it not be possible for Daemon to 'recognize' that the file is not a single-track file and alarm user that it cannot be opened, whereas in
    all other cases (like DVD), Daemon can open it?
    Just an idea...

    If iso is multi-track, daemon mounts it as one big single track. There is no reliable way to check if iso is single or multi-track.
