WinCDEmu Comments

No audio track support

Comment by Anamon
about WinCDEmu and DAEMON Tools Aug 2016

WinCDEmu currently doesn't support mounting images with CDDA/Redbook audio tracks, not even in uncompressed format. So far, plans of contributors to add this to the source have not manifested.

This is just a note to everyone who mentinos this software as an alternative to DAEMON Tools. As far as I know, DAEMON Tools is currently the only (at least the only free) software that is able to mount audio tracks.

Installation is quick and painless and didn't require a reboot on Windows 8.1. Compared to Daemon Tools Lite, mounting images is similarly painless, requiring no idiotic "launcher app," and the mounter even lets you choose which drive letter the image occupies.

Better than DT

Positive Comment by Apaosha
about WinCDEmu and DAEMON Tools Sep 2012

Beautiful open-source alternative for DAEMON-Tools. Because I disliked DT's ad-aware behaviour in their installers since ages, I tried and tested WinCDemu. Well, and I stick with it :). Lightware, simple, clean, multi-language, open-source, everything's just fine.
Nice! And the portable WinCDemu can be really a lifesaver ;).

Neat, Clean and Fast Program

Positive Comment by Reekdeb
about WinCDEmu Mar 2012

It's really nice small program. Just click and mount. Good feature is it doesn't occupy drive letters when not using it. Previously I used DAEMON Tools Lite which now bloated and slows down workflow for license checking. Though one thing I don't like about WinCDEmu, i.e. it's installer doesn't ask me file type association and overwrites them while installing. Overall, it's neat, clean and fast program.
