    When using Daemon Tools 4.03, we can mount NRG files and ISO files, right?

    But here's the thing:

    When we mount a .NRG file, it doesn't show up in the selected drive.
    Example, if we mount a game on [H:] and go to Explorer, the name of the game doesn't show up in the H: drive.

    However, when we mount an ISO file, the name correctly shows up in the corresponding drive and we can access it in explorer.

    But, in Chankast, when we have the ISO file mounted and we select 'Play' an error says : "Please insert game disc".

    On the contrary, when we have the .NRG file mounted and we select 'Play', it loads but fades to black and returns to the chankast bios screen.

    Why is this so? When we have the .NRG file mounted, shouldn't the insert disc error come and when we have the ISO file mounted, the game should work?

    What kind of file does Chankast_Alpha25 need in order to play that game?

    (Not asking where to get the file, but simply what kind of file is required. If this thread seems inappropriate, close it if necessary).

    So if I have the ISO or NRG form of the file, it is possible to convert it to .CDI format, right?
    Which will work in Chankast 25 Alpha.

    you can covert NRG to CDI;) Use daemon tools, mount the nrg image, use alcohol 120 to burn it from the virtual drive or make a cd image from the virtual drive.

    I understood the convert NRG to CDI by Using daemon tools and mounting the nrg image but I can't seem to understand the rest.

    Can you please explain in more detail?

    Thanks.

    From what I heard, Daemon Tools can't mount .nrg files properly and converting DC files is very dangerous as it can damage the image....but if I'm wrong, you learn from your mistakes lol.
