SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive

3 posts in this topic

Wasn't sure where to post this as it's Software related and crosses OS boundaries.

I had an ISO image of software on my FTP site and transferred it to a relative's brand new out-of-the-box Win7 Lenovo Desktop. Problem was, no blank CD's/DVD's were available. What to do?

A quick google showed right away - wonder of wonders! A forum post that suggest this software.

Went to to their website and unbelievably SlySoft is actually giving this away! Much like a "new and improved" Microsoft "Virtual CD".

Download, install, right-click and Mount the ISO to the installed Virtual CD/DVD drive. After done, right-click the CD/DVD drive and Unmount. Done! It was a "lifesaver" (well, it didn't really save any lives) in my situation.

For more information about the features and requirements go to the Download page and check it out!

HTH someone else (it's why I posted it).

Mods - if this needs moved (where?) please do so as appropriate.

edit - Apparently this has been around awhile. I had been using Nero ImageDrive under 9x and up and MS' Virtual CD on 2k and up. This is free also and IMHO better.

Yes, there are quite a few of these.

Clonedrive have been around since a lot of time, and while handy, in a NT based system (2K/XP/2003/Vista :ph34r: /2008/7) besides many other ones, a tool capable of mounting also floppy and hard disk images is even handier. ;)

I normally use IMDISK:

I also have this. What surprised me was that there existed a Free CD Image mounting software that was Win98/ME-compatible.

Huh! Just stumbled across this from MagicIso too!
