Editor's Review

Daemon tool lite manages virtual CD/DVD drives with in a windows environment. With support for up to 32 virtual drives, you will have more than ample drives to suit your needs.
The design of Daemon tools is to help those who prefer the use of a virtual CD/DVD to that of a physical disk. In the past CD’s/DVD’s where essential but as Disk drives and Solid state drives get bigger and faster CD/DVD drives are becoming less needed in everyday use.
The main feature of daemon tools we liked is the use of the DT drives these drives work differently to that of a SCSI drive, the DT drives uses a hidden set of drivers, which unlike SCSI drives can then read a range of disk that use media checking software such as Safedisk and secuROM.
The downside to the free version is that there is no IDE support and you will need to upgrade to the pro version. The price of the pro version is €34.90 which is a fair price for what you are getting, however unless you need the extra features found within the pro version we found the free version was more than adequate.
Overall, the free version is simple and easy to use offers support for a whole host of CD/DVD image formats, a large online database from both the makers and online community should you require help or support.

My favourite .... Drive emulator

Reviewer: Anish_john - View all of My Reviews

For those wondering, no DAEMON Tools is not freeware all the sudden, DAEMON Tools Lite is the version that is free. DAEMON Tools Lite allows you to play and/or install almost image file on your pc by allowing you to mount an image on their virtual drivers then clicking on the driver and then clicking on the main .exe file to play or install.

This is really useful if a friend ripped a game for you in an ISO format and you want to play it without having to burn it to disc first. Or you have a scratched game DVD that the drive reads but won't play. If you can rip the game to ISO form, you can play it using DAEMON Tools Lite.

The only downsides to DAEMON Tools Lite are the horrible setup which tries to install a bunch of crap no one wants while trying to change the homepage and the fact it can freeze up your computer when it is first installing the drivers.

The ideal solution for my netbook

Reviewer: das8tezwerglein - View all of My Reviews

DAEMON Tools Lite allows starting games by using a copy instead of the original CD. You only need an image of the original CD/DVD that you can easily create using DAEMON Tools Pro or any other popular CD burning software. The tool is the ideal solution for netbooks that don't have a CD/DVD drive.
