DAEMON Tools converts your computer CD/DVD discs into "virtual discs" or so called "disc image" files, which run directly on your hard drive. This protects original CD/DVD discs from loss, theft, and damage, plus a virtual disc has much better access rates than a physical CD/DVD disc in a physical CD/DVD ROM drive because the reading speed of a virtual CD/DVD-ROM is dozen times faster compared to normal CD/DVD drive.

Most popular product that offers easy tools for making simple disc image files and emulating virtual CD/DVD drives.

    Still probably the best tool of its kind. Unfortunately it contains non-optional spyware which some A/Vs identify as containing a trojan (it installs secondary backdoor programs). Sadly, the authors of Daemon Tools have become increasingly shady over the past couple years. Considering there are now viable free alternatives I'm forced to suggest staying away from Daemon Tools.

    This once was king. But the king has fallen.

    Author needs to get a clue.

    Virtual clone drive is free and has no bullsh1t malware included.

    -Too much junk included, even if its optional, its still junk.
    -Not portable.

    UltraIso does that job and much more.

    2 Star because it works and its free.
