Imagine this, you have two CDs and you need to alternately access data or you need to run program from the CD. You have only one CD drive.
Frustrating? Not anymore. DAEMONS Tools comes to the rescue.
Daemon-Tools is a virtual CD emulator or sometime known as CD image mounter.
Sounds techy, what does it do? Well, it does a two things that might be very interesting to you as a user.
It allows reading a CD without a CD drive
It allows reading multiple CDs at the same time
Effectively, Daemon Tools emulate (or “pretend to be”) a CD or DVD drive. So you can read the content of a CD/DVD without a drive. The mounted CD image will appears as a drive letter just like a normal CD. Normal file operations can be perform on it just like any CD.
