At present, DAEMON Tools is the best and most powerful virtual drive tool in the world, also the only one in similar tools that supports NF3, PS and encrypted CD/DVD formats. Besides, it is also an advanced simulation tool for backup and merging of protected CD/DVD (by SafeDisc encryption technique), and able to open CUE, ISO, IMB, CCD, BWT, MDS, CDI, VCD, and many other image file formats.

Almost no player who likes the single-player games does not know DAEMON Tools, which can not only greatly prolong the service life of our CD/DVD ROM (actually make them directly “retired” or “laid off”), but also enables a lot of players to play their favorite genuine games yet without having to pay for the CD/DVD discs. Again for instance, if you don’t have Blu-ray Disc drive and need to play a Blu-ray ISO file, then its powerful virtualization technology will be necessary.

Using DAEMON Tools can really bring us too many benefits. For example, you’ll get the extreme performance (50 times faster read/write speed than the ordinary drive) far surpasses the real physical drives (CD/DVD/HD DVD/Blu-ray Disc); it allows you to create as many as 32 SCSI virtual drives and 4 virtual IDE devices; the noise from working CD/DVD drive is gone; you don’t have to wait for the CD/DVD loading; even no reason to buy your laptop an external CD/DVD drive. In general, with DAEMON Tools you can use any kind of image file downloaded from the Internet, just like they were burn as a real CD/DVD disc and put in your CD/DVD ROM.

BTW, the Pro and Ultra editions are also almighty CD/DVD disc burner, support burning of all disc formats including Blu-ray Disc; and able to convert any image file to .MDF/.MDS, .MDX, .ISO formats… Moreover, you are even allowed to make common image file, encrypted, compressed, volumed image files, and so on.
