    As more and more downloads are at least 4.5 GB, my media player plays ISO but not IMG files

    how does one tell which type it'll be, before downloading starts?
    (NFO doesn't seem to say)

    Between Daemon tools and VLC player you should be able to play everything.

    I always just change the extension to ISO when I dl img files and burn them with nero. I haven't had a problem yet.

    I run everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, through DVDRemake and burn the video files rather than mess with iso's (or img's) anyway. Tends to 'clean out' mistakes made by the rippers, and remove a lot of the 'slime' they tend to leave in.

    I think the Daemon tools was the first little utility I put on my first 'DVD machine' some 6+ years ago, still going just fine on machine #3, use it even though I have several commercial knock-offs in burning pgms and such.

    do you change the extension by using 'rename' - didn't realise it would be that simple - doh!

    previously was burning them, but wanted to save time by just dragging and dropping to my media player and watch directly from there

    thanks

    I would avoid just renaming them as it can cause corruption. Instead use MagicISO. It can convert almost any image format to any other image format in no time (few seconds to few minutes).

    I don't really see the point in converting. While I do use Nero for some burning, ImgBurn is a great program for burning all types of dvd images. You should check it out!

    but I don't want to burn

    I only want to watch them on my mediaplayer, which doesn't recognise IMG, but does play ISO

    download daemon tools. mount the img file and you can watch it just like as if you put a dvd in your computer
