How Do I Play a Rosetta Stone ISO Disk?

Updated February 21, 2017

Rosetta Stone is considered the highest level of computer language learning. Many people believe it is actually the next best thing to total immersion in a new language. The software comes on DVD discs that can be installed onto your computer. If you have made a backup of the software or are using a free trial, you more than likely have an ISO file. This ISO file is an exact duplicate of the Rosetta Stone disc. You do not have to burn it to a blank DVD to use it.

Download and install one of the virtual drive programs (see Resources). All three programs work in the same manner, so it is a matter of preference as to which one you decide to install.

Locate the new icon on the notification area of your computer desktop. This is located on the lower right corner of the screen.

Right-click the icon and a menu will appear. Click "Virtual Drive" or "Mount" from the menu and a new window will appear. Browse through your computer for your Rosetta Stone ISO file and double-click it. The ISO file will be loaded into the virtual drive program and your computer will recognise the ISO as an actual DVD disc.

Click the "Start" button and click "Computer" from the menu that appears. You will see a list of your optical drives (HDDs and disc drives).

Locate the drive that reads "Rosetta Stone" and double-click it. The program will start up and you will be running the Rosetta Stone software on your computer from an ISO disc.
