For anyone wondering, this software doesn't support creating Images

Doesn't seem to support audio data.

I can get it to mount an MDF just fine, but I do see some info suggesting it'd have problems with compressed mdf images. I did have to select "all files" for it to let me choose the image file, and contrary to most other image mounters I did not select the .mds file but instead the mdf file directly (which is consistent with its behavior of bin/cue). I'm guessing though this only works for single-session disks, I do not have any images of multi-session disks to test with.

No mdf/mds support and RMPS emulation.

It doesn't support mdf/mds and lacks RMPS emulation. Otherwise, Virtual CloneDrive really works better than DaemonTools Lite (more user friendly, doesn't cause performance issues).

What's RMPS? Does it have to do with audio data? Wikipedia doesn't show what it stands for.

While it doesn't use SPTD, Virtual CloneDrive does not support many image formats which is a big letdown. I hate to see the sheep go.
