    Couldn't Mount File error- but the iso file was mounted


    In Windows 8.1, when I try to use the native ISO mounting function, either from the right-click menu, or by double clicking the iso file, I am getting the error:

    Code:
    Couldn't Mount File
    Sorry, there was a problem mounting the file.
    Yet most of the time, the virtual CD/DVD drive appears as it should!

    Does anyone know cause/effects/prevention of this?
