CD/DVD Emulation Software


[link to this post]
 
For burning CD/DVD images of games to HDD and for mounting as virtual CD/DVD drive. No need for burning to CD/DVD. Would prefer something which I can burn the images and later on donw the line can use them with other systems/installations.

Must be compatible with Vista 64x and should be able to work with future OS installations, such as Win7 etc.

This is for use with my own games. I might consider using it for backup imaging, but this is a secondary requirement. Would prefer something which can dodge Starforce (if such a thing is possible). No cracks/warez/keys wanted.

Have been bitten a couple of times in the past with WinXP Pro, so am more interested in overall system reliablity than anything else. Will not consider anything which demands I change my setup to suit it. Am prepared to consider free and non-free, but not adware-type solutions.


So what's the best option for me? Please suggest why 'x' and not 'y'. I have used some in the past, but want a fresh perspective.

Ta!

Ta spasch. You mentioned Win7/32/64. No one else has really explained why they favour what they favour.

Folks, I can google all the lists too, but need to know why you recommend them over the rest.

I recommend things I use, not google results.

Why not install them each and try for yourself. They are all free.

Because I use it and it works.
