    If you mean mounting a file on a virtual drive, you will need software to do it. Some CD/DVD burning software will take a piece of your hard drive and pretend that it is an optical drive.

    For example, you have a computer game ripped to a .iso file because you don't like load times (I do this with Diablo II). You would mount the .iso file and your computer thinks you have the CD in the drive.

    MOUNTing is related to a device, like a HD or a partition on an HD.
    From there, various OS systems layer other concepts, like a FILE Share
    { which is really a Folder Share:) }
    Maybe someone else has seen a means to MOUNT only a single FILE, but
    I have not.

    So you downloaded a .iso off some P2P and don't know what to do with it?

    Sorry mate, you're on your own.
