Hello,

This happened to me also. But I followed this process. As it was so simple and easy, I started to recommend it to everyone.

Steps:

  1. Download and Install PowerISO (it is the easiest to use software for this)
  2. Open PowerISO tool
  3. Open the iso file
  4. Select FILE menu
  5. Select the IMAGE PROPERTIES
  6. Check the UDF option
  7. Click OK
  8. Select FILE menu
  9. Select Save as menu
  10. Click YES

Now try again to mount the file. It will probably solve iso file format is invalid or unsupported.

If you have an ISO file, there are two ways how you can use it. One is by burning it on a blank CD or DVD disc using disc burner applications such as Nero or DAEMON Tools. After this, you can leave the ISO file on your computer and use the burned disc. The second method is to mount it on your computer using virtual CD or DVD drives.

When the ISO file is mounted on your computer, you can use it as if it was an actual disc. To mount an ISO file, you need to have an application that can create virtual drives and mount disc images such as ISO and the best tool for this is DAEMON Tools Lite.

It supports Windows XP Service Pack 3 32-bit only, Windows XP Service Pack 2 64-bit only, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10 both 32-bit and 64-bit. Once it is installed, run DAEMON Tools and create a virtual drive. Once a virtual drive has been created, mount the ISO file that you have and see if it mounts successfully.

Since you are only using a standard ISO file, DAEMON Tools should be able to mount it without a problem. But if the program can’t mount the file and throws an unsupported format error or invalid file format, it means your ISO file is damaged. Try downloading the ISO file again.
