Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
No idea why you have to "fiddle" with anything?  Years ago when I used W7 and W8, VCD was required to mount an iso and then play it through most players including PDVD.  It mounted and the player began playback from the menu.  When W10 was released, it included a built in mount and simplified iso playback negating the need for VCD and also simplified code here when integrated with KODI.  As in the past, you press play or enter on a title in the KODI library and your code adjusted default player or manually selected player of choice is called for that particular type of file.  For an iso using PDVD, that player opens, it auto mounts using the internal mount included in the player or via VCD if it's an older version of the player or O/S, and begins playback from the BD menu.  Once the trailers, etc. are finished, you are presented with the BD menu navigation and have the option to press 'Play title' as with any Full ripped iso.  I never encountered anything in the past or to date I have to "live with".  I included the 'timeout' addition in the code for systems that may execute a player faster than VCD could mount the iso.  This could be for various reasons such as a hard drive containing the iso takes time to spin-up and mount while the player installed on a C: drive might be immediate especially when the C: is on a SSD and the data is on a sleeping normal HDD.  Perhaps there is a drive letter conflict or a system has priority background tasks running or it's just slow?

Since PDVD and MPC both show symptoms that they did not 'see' the iso mounted, I would assume slowing them down from loading (giving ample time for VCD to load, find, call, and mount your iso) the 'timeout' function would cure your slow mounting problem.  Perhaps try the iso directly from the C: to eliminate any sleep or drive letter conflict problems as part of your diagnosis.  What happens if you close MPC or PDVD and immediately try again?  Does it work the 2nd time now that 'everyone' is at attention?  Do you have other things going on we're not aware of like one of these add-ons for pre-movie presentations like a theatre?  Did you actually assign drive letter 'A' for VCD as outlined in the guide?  If you selected another drive letter, did you update all the related codes to reflect that change you made? 

There is nothing in any of the codes I've supplied you need to alter in order to make things work although your rule change looks fine.  All the codes have been tested and used extensively for lengths of time until upgrades were made and codes were improved reflecting those upgrades.  It would help me help you if you included your specs.  There is nothing in your signature.  O/S version, GPU, Resolution, Software versions like PDVD and KODI, pertinent settings, the actual codes you are using, 2d or 3D or HDR, Pictures, etc.  Understand, I can't recreate your problem if you're using older stuff but from early posts in this thread and memory of when I did use older stuff perhaps I can help you better.  The fact you are still using VCD and those old .bats hints you are using older stuff.  Also, I notice you are referring to a .bat for 3D which will have no bearing on a 2D file.  Is this for a 3D problem or 2D?  Nevertheless, they should perform just as they did for me and others in the past.  If using modern stuff, I should be able to assist you immediately.
