Hi,

I've programmatically created image of a disk using the Windows API. Now, what I would want to mount this image so that I can access the image as if it is a physical drive.

What I need is either to write an application to mount an image or find a freeware somewhere for me to perform this mounting because I want to be able to access the image as if it was a physical drive.

Anyone with any freeware to recommend or can provide me with some tips in how to start writing such an application, please help... thanks in advance! 

I'm using VB.NET 2003.

Thanks.

Hi,

Re: Mounting an image onto Windows. Try converting it to an .ICO icon file first.

See these links.>> I picked out the 2nd link as the 4th one ffrom the GOOGLE search.

Then drop it into your SYSTEM ICONS folder within the CONTROL PANEL folder.
By the way if you right-click any icon in that folder did you know you can change your default icons this way and copy the existing ones.

Hi,

I think you got my question wrong... maybe I wasn't very specific with my question...

The image I am refering to is the "image" of a drive. i.e. a file that is deemed as a clone of the drive, not the image in graphics sense.

Nevertheless, thanks for trying to help!

Hi,

Try using this then for ISO images etcetera.>>

You can add up to 4 more drives with iso files.

Most ISO mounting tools do not mount disk partitions.
Personally I'm using the daemon tool also, but it cannot mount the image file properly.

WinImage is one tool that can perform this function, but it's not a freeware...

I've found tools like OSR Virtual CD & Disk (http://www.osronline.com/article.cfm article=410), but it does not seem work in Win XP Pro Service Pack 2 environment.

Any other ideas

Anyone has any idea on how to write one i.e. what .NET namespace should I look at or should i use win32 API
