Hi Albert,

Hope you are doing well.

Here are some steps to have your Virtual Clone Drive to work.

Please make sure that the drive in use by VCD is correctly setup in MP config file.

Make sure that in you MP config file is pointing to the correct exe file.

It should be:

C:Program filesVirtualCloneDrivedaemon.exe

This should have your ISO files mounting. 

Another solution you can try is getting the latest version for this utility and having it installed after uninstalling the old one. This is if you do not have the latest one yet.

Hope this helps you in having your ISO files mounted again.

Hi there

The daemon and alcohol tools are user friendly and seems exciting but Microsoft has also its own virtual drive utility also that can be availed free of cost. The mount error problem can be solved by doing the following steps carefuly.

Just download and unzip the file than move it to your system file directory afterwards just clicks the program to run and then click driver control option then find the file you earlier moved to your system fie directory and then click to start. Next step is to go back and creating a new virtual drive then mount an ISO.

Hi Albert, It could be a bug in the USB installation script. Either use a different USB installation script(Unetbootin, Ubuntu Startup Creator) or you could probably just use a cd and forget about it.

It is very unlikely that it is your processor or the USB drive/stick.
