    Hi all

    once you've got an ISO file on Disc you can mount it with a right mouse click on the file.

    You can then use any standard software you like to access the DVD for example I'm playing a DVD (Battlestar Galactica 1980) with VLC


    (can't find a replacement for W7 snipping tool but old XP application grabber_2k works fine -- file has to be saved as jpg however rather than png)

    The snipping tool is in the Apps. You can also use FastStone Capture - last free one: A+ Freeware - Multimedia & Design - FastStone Capture 5.3 (last freeware version)
