    Unhappy Virtual CD/DVD?

    I am a gamer and i would like to play games that i have downloaded, but i do not know how to launch the games. Some people have said i need Daemon Tools and or Power ISO and even a virtual drive to move and delete files and such info. I don't know how to use these tools or if its b.s. Can anyone explain the steps i need to know to launch my more complicated game downloads?

    make a folder
    run
    Code:
    $sudo mount -t iso9660 path/to/your.iso /path/to/folder -o loop
    now you can browse the folder like it is the CD
