I use the free Virtual Clone Drive on Win 7 and Win 8 and have never had any issues with it.

Also IsoBuster will install as freeware with the paid features disabled. I think you can enable them on a trial basis. It depends what you need to do. IsoBuster has been rock solid for me. But my needs in this area are light. I too abandoned deamon tools after a certain version where stablility became a problem. If you have licenced deamon it might be worth a try to mess with various versions if it lets you install old versions. Seems to me I remember some versions after I first noticed problems, were pretty stable. Which version works best for you may vary by machine.

Hi MilesAhead,

Can I mount a DVD ISO or BD ISO in IsoBuster and play those?

There are free DVD iso mounters. I haven't used IsoBuster in awhile. Mostly I used it for data recovery. There's a gigantic tools list on www.videohelp.com. It's a great resource for video software, hardware etc.. Many forums for help if you get stuck on topics from BluRay conversion to subtitle creation.

No probs.

I brought this question because IsoBuster is not the answer to OP's query on Virtual CD software. I was wondering how it is related.

And I just wanted to know whether I am missing something since I have the licenced pro version of IsoBuster which at best is only a data recovery software. The only other feature I came to know of IsoBuster is it can be used to create ISO images of non-copy protected optical discs.

Thanks for clarifying it is not an alternative to Virtual CD software like Daemon Tools, Alcohol etc., which the OP had asked.

Hi there
For Windows 7 Alcohol52% Free edition IMO is the simplest and most reliable piece of Virtual CD / DVD mounting software. Windows 8 has a built in Virtual CD / DVD mounter -- standard with the OS.

Free-Codecs.com | Download Alcohol 52% 2.0.2.4713 : Alcohol 52% CD & DVD emulation software can create virtual CD/DVD-ROM drives


Works fine too if you've copied a DVD to an HDD with a program like AnyDVD - alcohol52% will mount the HDD iso and you can play your DVD identically as you would with physical DVD's with your DVD playing software such as VLC etc.

Cheers

If you say so. It was an alternative to Deamon Tools for me. I stopped using Deamon Tools for the most part after noticing the instability mentioned a few years back. I really didn't see anything in the first post about mounting BluRay discs or anything of that nature. So I don't really underand your objection. Besides, a couple of suggestions for media handling type programs were already made. I guess the question is more in the line of why I didn't keep silent? That what it sounds like.

All the virtual CD emaluator software are too some extent troublesome. One thing is common in them, they put some SCSI adapter there which makes the system BSOD prone in turn. Daemon tools is the most problematic one, and Alcohol products are as good as Daemon tools, as it uses the legendary SPTD.

The best way is to use either Winrar (it charges a little) or 7-zip. Both of them can extract any form of disc image files, so the basic job will be equally done. What you will miss is the autorun ... and what you will gain is a BSOD free computer.
