How To Use Daemon Tools Lite To Mount an ISO image file

by Himanshu Yadav on August 27, 2010

Mounting is a process of creating a virtual CD/DVD drive inside computer hard disk so that you can access that drive anytime you want. The greatest advantage of virtual drive is no physical CD/DVD is needed to burn them if you want to make a CD from an ISO file, i.e. just make a virtual drive from ISO file.

Daemon tools lite is a free software that lets you crete virtual drives easily. To use this software, you have to download and install it first. After installation, open it. You’ll see a two areas in the tool. Right click on the lower area and select “Add SCSI Virtual Drive”. A drive will be added to the interface.
