Default how to open iso file without a CD ROM drive?

I downloaded a game from the internet, and it's an iso file. I already got Daemon tools lite installed, and the files are mounted to a G drive created by Daemon tools. I tried opening the file but it says "Please put Game in your CD drive". Now what do I do?

Unmount the ISO, then remount it. If that doesn't work, check all emulation options.

Dude Daemon tools is useless. The best program to mount ISO's and other image files is this: http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/mi...c-overview.htm

Its a real small file and its super easy to use and you only need to run it from the tray.

Check your PM's.

EDIT: Hehe @Atomic Rooster's sig

Daemon Tools is useless? Lol, okay.
What's the game? The copy protection is blocking you from running it. As Atomic Rooster said, enable all the emulation options.

Just place this in the Damon Tools directory:
http://copybase.org/yasu/
Then set up a shortcut to it, and run it when you start up Damon Tools

You gotta love cloaking ^.^

ok i tried enabling all the daemon tools lite options and remounting the drive but it doesn't work. Also tried yasu but it doesn't make a difference. Am I using yasu wrong? I put the yasu in the same directory as daemon tools, and this is the message from the log:

* cloaking procedure started.
SafeDisc 4.x: Unable to find controller(s) to cloak
SafeDisc 4.x: Controller(s) may already be cloaked
SecuROM 7.x: Unable to find device(s) to cloak
SecuROM 7.x: Device(s) may already be cloaked
* Cloaking procedure completed


Also, there is a problem installing the direct X from the game, because a message pops up that says it can't install direct X, though I'm pretty sure I have the latest version on my computer.

No luck with MagicISO either.
