Using mplayer using the -dvd-device option to specify the .img as a device should work. The same trick may/may not be possible with Xine or if you need the files in the image then loopback mounting the image would work:

mount <.img file> temp_dir/ -o loop,ro

Thanks for the help. installing it now.
I know that in nero it will convert your mp3's and other types of music to a universal audio format that can be played in ant cd player. can mplayer do this also? or is there a converter that i can use?
