    I am wondering if anyone knows of a good piece of software for a Media Center PC running XP that can mount ISO's all the ones I have found only mount the basic media files. :D

    I don't know of any windows software that can play ISO files... although i wouldn't be surprised if the windows version of VLC player could do it, however, i think the best solution for you is a tool made by micro$oft that allows you to mount cd images in virtual drives. (they will appear in my computer as if they are a real cd / dvd).

    you can download it HERE (this is a direct link to the download on a Micro$oft server which i found in THIS FAQ).

    If your building a Media Center you might want to have a look at LinuxMCE (media center edition), there is a video comparing LinuxMCE and windowsMCE HERE (its a bit biased, but it does a good job of showing all the features and advantages)
