What I mean is, when I open it in e.g. magicISO to edit, it lists like three subfolders, and also a .ds_store file a .symavqsfile file, .volumeicon.icns file, desktop DB, desktop DF, discinfo, etc, etc. If I mount it in Daemon Tools and look inside, it shows it as having an .exe, and some other completely different files.

What gives?

Some discs show different file systems to Mac OS X and Windows systems. It sounds like MagicISO is showing you the Mac OS X filesystem and Daemon Tools is showing you the Windows filesystem.

.DS_Store is a file used by Mac OS X, and filenames beginning with a dot generally indicate they were made by a program that behaves like a Unix program. Filenames ending with .exe indicate they were meant for Windows (or Mono, but usually Windows).

OK. Any ideas on how to get MagicISO to stop thinking I'm on a Mac? – victoriah Jan 9 '11 at 5:23
@victhoriah - Ask this in another question (we don't charge extra for that). – Nifle Jan 9 '11 at 10:47
