    Default Mount an image inside another image

    Operating System: WinXP, SP2
    Burning Software: Nero 7.0.5.4.
    Anti-virus Software: AVG
    DAEMON Tools Version: 4.0.3 X86


    I don’t know if is a bug what happened to me:
    I’ve mounted an image file, called “A-image”, that contains another image inside, called “B-image”. I’ve tried to mount the B-image on the virtual drive that was mounting the A-image. Daemon unmounts the A-image, so obviously, the B-image was no more available and for this reason the daemon tools locked itself on the “please wait…” message. It has been necessary to restart windows (not reset) to solve the problem. I hope to have express the problem clearly, thanks for this wonderful program! Anubi

    I don't have tested this yet, but when mount the B-image on the virtual drive that is mounting the A-image then the B-Image isn't present on this location anymore because DT unmounted the A-Image before mounting the B-Image. So DT can't mount the image and lock itself.

    I use 4 virtual drives instead of only one as default.
    In this case, i can easily mount images from inside other images.

    Right, more drives than one is the solution for this problem!

    Also if d-tools is set to only use one drive, a small msgbox could be made to popup saying, "This image resides inside the currently mounted image. Please enable more than one virtual drive for successful mounting of nested image files." or something similar....
    Just an idea for v4.04... :P

    Come on - can you insert 2 cds into the same real cd drive? So why is there a message required to tell you the obvious?

    I actually agree with u....
    I myself dont make images of images....
    But if people insist on doing these strange things... why not have a msg popup to tell them not to?

    I want to mount an image in an image in an image in an image in an image in an image. Why won't this work?

    True, but when I try to place my second real CD into the closed tray I am physically stopped from doing so unless I hit the eject button.

    With a VCD we of course have no physical barrier to mounting a second CD into a VCD with a CD already in it. The software does not make any effort to stop us from doing this so why shouldn't the user try?

    Just my thoughts.
