No audio track support

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.


Exactly. It is its only annoying limitation. If you want to mount a .cue with data + audio tracks of an old game (e.g. Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, Activision 1995) you can't with with WinCDEmu (Apr 2019).

Daemon Tools is Freemium, not Freeware. Definitely not Open Source. That last bit makes a big difference to some people...but I hear you on the .cue tracks, as I used to grab a lot of stuff from Usenet before the IPtrolls broke everything. We are the niche, but it's a niche thing.

Works great on everything but Windows 10.


Works fine on Windows 10 newest build 1909

While the portable edition "works" on Win10, "Windows Explorer" has been replaced/redesigned as "File Explorer", so, not so much. One recent comment on PowerISO complains that WinCDEmu doesn't create iso files. I was going to argue; it was easy to do from XP to 8.1, but I can't figure out how to do it in Win10 File Exploder either! It used to be so well integrated, it was easy to forget it didn't come from Micro$oft. Perhaps it still keeps all its features in 10, but it's very difficult to use.

the Portable version is a lifesaver.
