Work with an emulation suite for mounting disc images in ISO and TOAST formats. Create an environment replicating the drive for a physical copy of the disc and enable system recognition of interactive actions and options for opening folders, launching processes, etc.
Toast 5 and 6 allow the user to mount a disk image (.iso / .toast) on the desktop as if a cd is in the drive. All applications then thinks a real cd was inserted.
ToastMount uses some parts of Toast to do all this with a simple drag-n-drop (or double-click) instead of launching Toast, select the Menu and choose the image.
Note: This is NOT the same as Disk Image Helper does. What's New
Version 2.0.1: Thanks to Keith van Stolk-Riley!He mailed me that ToastMount always says there's a new version available if you do not have an Internet connection.This has been fixed in 2.0.1Version 2.0:
- Detecting image type (blocksize)
- Supporting hybrid images
- Automatically checking for updates at launchtime
- Toast 5 is no longer officially supported
- Requires Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.3 or later, Toast 6.0 or later
