DAEMON Tools is a Virtual CD & DVD optical storage media emulator. It is able to emulate nearly all known copy protections on the market today, enabling the user to "Mount" CD & DVD images as if they were already burned to disk! DAEMON Tools works with Windows9x / ME / NT / 2000 / XP along with all types of CD & DVD-ROM drives (IDE/SCSI) and supports nearly any CD protection.
DAEMON Tools supports the following image files:
* bin / cue
* ccd (CloneCD) * mdf / mds (Alcohol 120%)
* bwt (Blindwrite)
* cdi (Discjuggler) * nrg (Nero)
* pdi (Instant CD/DVD)
* b5t (BlindWrite 5)

Several other programs use SPTD, including Alcohol 120%. Click "OK".
A system restart will need to be done before continuing the DAEMON’s installation. Click "OK" to reboot the computer.

Mount an Image with DAEMON Tools
Launch DAEMON Tools from the "Start" menu or "Desktop" shortcut.
When run, the DAEMON Tools icon will appear at bottom right of the screen, in the Windows System Tray.
Right-click the "DAEMON Tools icon", select "Virtual CD/DVD-ROM", select 'Set number of devices..."
and select the number of Virtual Drives desired ("1 Drive" in the above example).
Right-click on the DAEMON Tools icon, Select "Virtual CD/DVD-ROM",
Select "Device 0 [ J:]" (in the above example) and Click "Mount",
"Browse" to and open the desired image and Click "OK".
Checking "My Computer" you will see the new drive, "Virtual Drive (J:) "
and that "Virtual Drive (J:)" is Mounted with the "Image", "Movie (2007) LRC R5 DVDRiP KvCD Hockney(TUS Release).cue"
As you can see in the example above, "Virtual Drive (J:) " can be "Explored" and used just as a "Physical" drive.
This holds true for all supported Image files. Some images will "Auto Start" and others will have to be "Explored".
To "Unmount" an Image, "Right Click" the DAEMON Tools tray icon, Select "Virtual CD / DVD-ROM",
Select Device 0 [ J:] (in the example above) and Click "Unmount" or "Unmount all drives".
