Post feature RSS Rise of the Witch-king No-DVD Image for Windows 10

Quick fix for windows 10 in order to play Rise of the Witch-king expansion.

Posted by on

Greetings!

As you may have noticed, most Rise of the Witch-king players now use the popular .mds/.mdf DVD image files to play the game, rather than inserting their physical disc each time they want to start a match.


The old DVD image files worked well all the way from Windows XP to Windows 8.1. However they no longer seem to work on Windows 10. In Windows 10, you are unable to properly mount the image files and will get a "Please insert the correct CD-ROM, select OK and restart application" error when launching the game.

To fix this issue we worked hard on a new set of image files that are compatible with Windows 10. Simply download and extract the two files inside the RotWk_Maxi_TheSmokingMan.rar archive, and mount the .mds file using the virtual disc software of your choice (Daemon Tools, Alcohol, WinCDEmu, etc.). Please note that while the download size of the .rar is only 6 MB, when extracted it will take up about 2.5 GB worth of space, just like the old image. Be sure you have enough space on your drive before extracting it.

Note: When using Daemon Tools, make sure you mount the image files to SCSI rather than mounting them the default way. This is also valid for other software although they should do it automatically for you.

The files were compiled by The Smoking Man, with special thanks to Phoenix, SpecialGuest, IceVice and Motoma who helped out where needed.

So I have the Daemon Tools Lite's latest version (new download) but the SCSI option is nowhere to be found. Left click, add new drive, etc.. I've been spending hours to find the option and 13hrs later, still no result.
How can I proceed from here?

Hi, I'm using WinCDEmu and I still keep getting the same error. I'm mounting the file as a data disk. Am I supposed to mount it in another format?
