WinCDEmu Reviews

Lightweight ISO Emulator

about WinCDEmu and DAEMON Tools, Virtual CloneDrive Sep 2012

I had been using DAEMON Tools Lite for mounting ISO images but when I came to know about WinCDEmu from a web article and played with it for a while I uninstalled DT Lite and made WinCDEmu my default ISO mounting tool. It's very small in size, with little footprint and faster mounting. After installing WinCDEmu just double clicking the ISO file will mount it instantly. There's no annoying tray icon and no permanent virtual drive in My Computer when it's not in use. It can mount unlimited numbers of files at a time. I deal with ISOs mostly but it can handle some other common formats too (e.g. CUE, NRG, MDS/MDF, CCD, IMG). Moreover, it's open source and has got a very handy portable version. All in all, it's a great alternative to it's well-known counterparts such as DAEMON Tools and Virtual CloneDrive.
