Virtual CloneDrive

Virtual CloneDrive

At times, you might need to mount an ISO file to view the contents of the ISO file, or may be, you might want to mount a Windows OS ISO file to quickly copy ISO contents to create a bootable USB flash drive. Though Windows 7 doesn’t support ISO mounting out of the box, there are some good free utilities to mount an ISO file.

In general, one needs to burn the ISO file to CD/DVD to view and use the contents of the ISO file. But if you don’t want to burn the ISO to a CD/DVD, you can use third-party tools such as Virtual CloneDrive to easily mount ISO files.

Virtual CloneDrive is a completely free and easy-to-use ISO image mounting software for Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7. It can easily mount .CCD, .BIN, .UDF, .ISO, .IMG, and .DVD files.

How to use it:

  • Download and install the software from here.
  • Right-click on the ISO image file that you want to mount and select Mount (Virtual CloneDrive (drive letter)).
  • Now, you can see the new virtual drive in the explorer (My Computer).

Example:

For example, if you want to mount a Windows 7/Windows 8 ISO file to copy installation files, you would perform following steps:

  • Navigate to the drive or folder that contains Windows 7 ISO file.
  • Right-click on the ISO file, and select Mount (Virtual CloneDrive (drive letter))option. Also notice the drive letter provided in the option.


  • Now open Windows Explorer and open the virtual drive to see the ISO file contents. You can now copy all the contents of the drive to your desired drive or folder.

VirtualDub

VirtualDub

VirtualDub is a video join/capture/processing utility for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms (98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7), licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).  It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video.  It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters.  VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP image

 

How to use:

Suppose you have the file 01.avi and 02.avi and want to create twist.avi as a single file that includes 01.avi and 02.avi.

Run VirtualDub.

1. Upload file 01.avi (File/Open video file)

2. Move to the end of the movie

3. File/Append video segment

4. Select the file to add (for example 02.avi).

5. Video/Direct Stream Copy (the file is again compressed in the video).

6. Audio/Direct Stream Copy (the file is again compressed in the audio).

7. Store the new file by selecting file/save avi.

HJSplit

HJSplit

HJSplit is a popular set of freeware file-splitting programs created by Freebyte.com in collaboration with various programmers. HJSplit supports many platforms (Windows XP, 7, Vista, NT, 200x, 3.x, 9x, ME, Linux/wine, all 64 bit editions of Windows, DOS, Amiga, Java, etc.). All versions are compatible with each other and allow you to exchange files between these different platforms. E.g. a file split on the Amiga can be joined on Windows 2000 and vice versa.

Now what’s the use of a program like HJSplit? Think of a file of 20 Mb, and try to send this to a friend. Using email this does not succeed, it is simply too large, and how to put it onto a floppy? HJSplit will enable you to split the large file into smaller chunks, which can be much more easily sent and stored.

What about a backup of very large Gigabyte sized files? HJSplit (Windows and Javaversion) also can handle these! E.g. HJSplit allows you to split a 10 Gb file into 640 Mb parts, which can then be stored onto CD-Rom’s by your CD-writer software.

Of course HJSplit can join these split parts back together again, so that the original file is restored. Alternatively, you can use HJJoin for this, which is a tiny and specialized program for joining files.

HJSplit is very reliable, simple, small and easy to use. It does not need any installation or complicated DLLs, it just consists of one ‘.exe’ file. This means that you can also run it directly from a USB stick or CD-Rom.

 

OS: Windows 7, XP, Vista, 200x, NT, 9x, ME, all current 64 bit editions of Windows and Linux/Wine.
