Daemon Tools Lite Free Download Daemon Tools Lite is a free software for emulating a CD, DVD or Blu-Ray player, ie to make the system believe that such a player is installed while it is the basis of a simple disk image present on the hard disk of the system. It can read a large number of disc image formats (ISO images), whether data, video (DVD, Blu-Ray) or audio CDs.
It also offers tools for creating a disk image.
Daemon Tools is a CD and DVD emulator capable of reading the following file formats: mdx, mds / mdf, iso, b5t, b6t, bwt, ccd, cdi, bin / cue, ape / cue, flac / cue, nrg and isz. The creation of disk images is also at the rendezvous. It is compatible with CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray.
Disk images are saved in one of the following formats: iso, mds / mdf, and mdx. In case of lack of space, the images can be compressed. Password protection is allowed to protect the files.
With Daemon Tools Lite, it is possible to create up to 4 virtual drives. Each reader can be configured to fit a region. The customization of access letters can also be done. It is thus possible to mount and use up to 4 disk images simultaneously. For more information, see the
