Question-2 What media center plays IFO's or ISO's?

I want a media center that can play my ripped dvd from dvd shrink or ISO's that are saved on my hard drive. I am using alcohol to create a virtual drive so that Power Cinema reads the DVD but alcohol only supports 31 virtual drives. I am quickly approaching that number. I am creating a server that is going to run to the living room but I don't want to have to mount and unmount the iso's before I go in the living room. I want to be able to play any dvd on my hard drive. Any suggestions on work around or other types of extentions that I need to turn my movies into so Power Cinema will be able to recognize them. If so, what program do |I need to convert my current files into the new file type.

I just use WinDVD to play mine. I just associated the .vob files with the path to WinDVD so that when you double click on the .vob and it automatically opens WinDVD. So in theory you could have a real sweet setup if you have WinXP. What you need to make sure is that when you rip the dvd into .vob's they arent all split up into 1gb files like DVD decryptor and DVDShrink are set to do. Then Assoicate the .vob file with WinDVD, then make shortcuts (in a folder, or on the desktop) to each movies .vob file and rename the shortcut to the name of the movie. If it's XP and you put all your shortcuts to all the different movies in it's own folder, you can even set XP to show say a picture of the movie. That would be cool. Too bad I only have $160gb multi-media PC. I've got it hooked up to a Proxima projector that spans 14feet in my lower level, with 2 lay-z-boys as my "movie chair seats" Wireless Keyboard, mouse, it's real sweet. But with the combo of ripped dvd's, mp3's and the latest video games for computer, 160gb doesnt go too far

The dvd structure can be into a folder.
So with your PowerCinema, you could read the dvd on your harddrive as a dvd.
Having an iso or having a folder with dvd structure has the same size on your hard drive. You have just to choose your movie by the name of folder !
Having 31 virtual Drive is not a good solution...
