If the game plays additionals music tracks from the cd ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_Mode_CD mixed mode]), you can still mount it as an image file. Since ISO can only contain pure data, the image has to be in the [[Cuesheet|CUE/BIN format]]. You mount it with
+
<code><pre>Z:\>IMGMOUNT E C:\Images\MyImage.cue -t iso</pre></code>
+
The BIN-file has to be in the same folder as the CUE-file. It is also possible to use a cuescheet in combination with an ISO and [[Cuesheet|compressed audio tracks]] in OGG or MP3 format.

MOUNT.COM is a command inside DOSBox that can connect physical folders and drives to virtual drives inside DOSBox. When you enter the command MOUNT from the DOSBox prompt you should see

Z:\>MOUNT
Current mounted drives are:
Drive Z is mounted as Internal Virtual Drive

To mount a folder as a drive, follow this basic template.

MOUNT [Drive-Letter] [Local-Directory]

The local directory can be specified relative to the working directory from which DOSBox was started.

To unmount a drive, follow this basic template.

MOUNT -u [Drive-Letter]
