    On my old system for a lot of my stuff due to lack of space I dumped files onto DVDs and then put them in the system when I needed them. Now that my new system as a lot more space I'm dumping the files back onto the drives.
    Before my last system finally gave the ghost I had two ISOs I had built that I had not yet burned as I ran out of dual layer DVDs and I still don't have any more. I want to mount the images and then just pull the failes off the image then carry on from there but I don't know what to mount with. I heard of Daemon tools but there is a rumor that it's not really the safest thing to use.
    Any recommendations for something that would take less than twenty minutes?

    MagicISO is extremely easy. Drag and drop.

    Power iso is probably the easiest. You just right click on the image and select mount.

    Why the fuck would someone use Daemon or Alcohol? I mean honestly do you need more bloat. VirtualCloneDrive is great for mounting.

    Well you've got to navigate to the ISO the first time anyway. What could make double clicking on your library of ISOs easier?

    Navigate for first time.

    Double click to mount once it's in the library.

    Thread title always brings strange images to mind

    And daemon tools lite is free of bloatware.

    Alchohol 52% is a great lightweight way to simply mount them
    it doesnt have all the extra features of 120% though

    I use MagicDisc. It's what should be integrated into Windows to begin with. The shell integration is amazingly seamless.

    Why are you guys fighting over what disk image mounter to use?! They all work just dandy.
    FYI. Magic ISO can have a vicious memory leak (taking 4gb+ of RAM) on isos larger than ~7gb.

    Edit:
    Getting pretty sick of this guy voting dumb on every post he finds, it's SILLY easy to stop this from happening. (Code wise, inb4 HURP DURP LET'S JUST BAN HIM AGAIN)

    Hence I use MagicDisc, and don't use ISOs bigger than my 4.7GB blank discs...

    Alcohol 52% is great, I use it for ripping DVDs as well as for virtual drives.

    It can't be an opinion whether something is more bloated than another, it would be fact. In this case it's not. An opinion would be it's bloated. But when you compare the heftiness of two or more programs it becomes fact/fiction.

    For Windows XP/Vista: Daemon Tools Lite.
    For Windows 7: PowerISO

    Windows 7 has issues with most of the Vistual Drive programs bar PowerISO.

    I bought Alcohol 120% a long time ago so that I could <blank> my frinds copies of <blank> <blank> but after that was done I forgot about it.

    Normally though I created and mastered all my disc images in Nero before sending it off to something like Magic ISO for burning.

    I used to be an avid user of DAEMON Tools but their attitude lately is annoying ( trying to sell the free versions, still including spyware and shit )

    PowerISO is simply amazing, it can convert or mount any type of image you throw at it. DAEMON Tools can't do .daa, while PowerISO can.
