Windows 8 has the ability to natively mount ISO images. But how to know which ISO file is mounted in a virtual drive?

At the PowerShell prompt:

To find the drive letter corresponding to an ISO:

Get-DiskImage -ImagePath "full_path_to_image" | Get-Volume

To find the ISO corresponding to a drive letter:

Get-Volume -DriveLetter F | Get-DiskImage

"F" is obviously the drive letter. Also, you can try omitting "-DriveLetter" to shorten the command. If you omit both "-DriveLetter" and the letter itself, you should see info for all volumes.
