Popular Software That Provides Functional Tools for Creating Disc Image Files

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Monday, September 22, 2014

For me, DAEMON Tools is a very reliable software that makes virtual drives on your PC. It has the possibility to manage DVDs and CD in a fast way. It compresses your images, and protects it with password if you want to. This software also supports most well-known file formats including blindwrite, media descriptor file, CloneCD, ISO and ISZ. It also burns any files into DVDs, CDs and even Blu-Rays in just a matter of clicks. On the other hand, it has a manageable and intuitive interface. It has a small menu and built-in features. I think configuring its interface is not that complicated. You can quickly access to all option and menus via program icon in its system tray. Also, it has command line interface for automation uses. In addition, this software can generate up to four virtual devices to mount images at the same time. All in all, DAEMON Tools is an exceptional software that offers functional tools for creating simple disc images files and emulate virtual drives.

Pros

  • Simple and intuitive user interface
  • It is highly stable software

Cons

  • Only available for Windows platform
