DAEMON Tools works under Windows XP/Vista/7/8 with all types of CD/DVDROM drives (IDE/SCSI) and supports nearly any CD protection.
- Daemon Tools needs a 1:1 Copy to run!!
- Daemon Tools is used to RUN GAMES, NOT TO BURN THEM!!! Means emulation must be active while you want to play a game, not while burning the copy (except for you want to use DAEMON Tools' "fastdump" feature on a safedisc protected CD).
- If you want to run a copy protected application from an image mounted to a Generic DVD-ROM enabling the copy protection emulation(s) is NOT necessary!!
- Generic DVD-ROM is able to run nearly every protected or unprotected CD image (Safedisc, Securom, Laserlock, Lockblocks etc.) like it was the original CD! Just do an image file using one of the supported burning programs and mount it with Daemon Manager!
Daemon Tools main features
- creates *.iso and *.mds images;
- emulates up to 4 virtual CD/DVD drives;
- performs image mounting and unmounting;
- supports *.b5t, *.b6t, *.bwt, *.ccd, *.cdi, *.cue, *.nrg, *.pdi, *.isz;
- offers powerful command line interface.

I agree with all the positive ratings, however the article left out one file type that it also supports. VCD format. The formats i used were created by VirtualDrive a CD/DVD Emulator. It builds VCD images of game, programs cd/dvd's Well i've been using daemon tools to mount those vcd images , which it does very nicely
This program allows running Backup Copies of SafeDisc (C-Dilla), Securom, Laserlock, CDCOPS, StarForce and Protect CD (and many others) protected games. Also included is a Virtual DVDROM drive (Generic DVD-ROM) enabling you to use your CD images as if they were already burned to CD!
