Though its user interface is intuitive and almost plain, behind its simplicity is hiding enormous functionality and efficiency. With just a few clicks you can emulate either DT virtual devices (basic ones) and SCSI virtual devices that help to deal with highly secured discs of games, programs, etc. There is an impressively long list of supported disc images: cue/bin, ccd, bwt, iso, nrg, cdi, mds, pdi and b5t. The program also features the usage of shortcut keys.
Daemon Tools Lite is free for personal use, but commercial users have to pay a fee. More emulated drives, compression, creation of images and the GUI are covered by a pro version. During the installation the program want to include additional toolbars, so check out to opt out of it.
However, the program has numerous advantages and it's a great choice for both owners of netbooks that have no physical disc drives as well as those who want to either save their notebook battery or are simply tired of using standard discs.
