    This is a combined question and feature-request if not possible....

    Is it possible for CloneDrive to operate COMPLETELY silently, in the sense that if an iso could not be mounted, I don't want to get a Windows message-box to that affect (or likewise for any other use-cases that might result in a message box).

    The reason for this is that on various Media Servers, having Windows message boxes appear destroys the themed illusion of a STB-style environment, especially when that Server is controlled ONLY by an IR remote, in a Home-Cinema type environment.

    Having CloneDrive either just not throw the message-boxes, or even better write to a log-file instead, would allow Media Server developers to detect / code-around these lesser chanced-upon use-case scenarios, rather than the end-user seeing a glaring Message Box which requires a reset to remove (various commercial Media Servers don't have Mouse/keyboard attached to them).

    Thanks for listening!

    I agree this would be a good feature to have.

    We are using VCD + AnyDVD on our machines to play .iso files and want the interface to be IR controllable.
