This well-known product by DAEMON Tools Disc Soft Ltd. lets you create virtual devices for various formats to ease your 'CD/DVD life'. This way you can use backups of your real CDs or DVDs and mount the images to access the stored data. No need to use the original CDs or DVDs all the time, which brings several advantages.

Archive your CDs/DVDs

No matter which format you are using for your images of the original CDs/DVDs, DAEMON Tools Lite will handle it. The software can handle formats such as *.mdx, *.mds/*.mdf, *.iso, *.b5t, *.b6t, *.bwt, *.ccd, *.cdi, *.bin/*.cue, *.ape/*.cue, *.flac/*.cue, *.nrg, *.isz. This can save you time, as you do not have to burn the discs anymore, which in the end is good for the environment.

Mount it

DAEMON Tools Lite lets you create on or more virtual drives. Drive letters are assigned to these virtual drives and you can use them as if you are using the real CDs/DVDs. The software can also handle protection systems. This allows you to also virtually use protected CDs/DVDs.
