    I'm a switcher and saddly I'm still waiting on my MBP. I was just wondering if I can load ISOs onto my mac and play them through frontrow.

    THANKS!

    Unfortunately no.

    There are however third party products like DVD Assist which enable FR to play VIDEO_TS folders and may add ISO functionality...

    You could always try VLC....

    crap, I hope that other program works. I dislike dealing with separate folders instead of just a nice clean ISO.

    Thanks Though.

    It's especially odd since iDVD can save projects as ISO, so you'd think they'd give you a way to play them in Front Row...

    I guess you have to give a little to keep on the good side of the MPAA...

    What you could do is mount the .iso file trough Toast. Then, if its a DVD you can just go to front row and go to the DVD player and enjoy.
