    ISO Error: Disc Image not formatted for NTFS.


    OK, so I made a backup DVD of some OS related programs for my computers onto a DVD, but when I attempted to MOUNT the image from the disk to Win 8.1's included virtual drive, I get an error that the Disc Image is not formatted for NTFS file system, and cannot be mounted.

    I can copy the files from the disc to a location on the desktop and execute the files from there, but it's a royal pain in the neck to do this every time.

    Can somebody please tell me what I need to do to fix this?
    (Yes, I understand, I probably will need to build a new image and burn it to a new DVD, but I want to make it one that I can run the disc from my optical drive and it will work!)

    And *PLEASE* no nagging about "You can do that from USB!"
    USB is volatile storage, and can be erased. I prefer hardcopy backups for this reason.

    I've done my share of "stuff" with software and programs, but I don't understand this one. I'm familiar with Daemon Tools, but this program doesn't seem to compare.
