The Disc image system is an Editor, Converter and a driver that can mount ISO CD/DVD images into a Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista based system. This gives the impression that a new CD/DVD-ROM drive has been added and a disc has been inserted. The small size of the driver and its simple operation allow an integration which is similar to actually using CD/DVD-ROM hardware, but as the drive is virtual, there is no hardware noise or lag. It is even possible to mount as many images as there are available drive letters.
The Disc image system can mount .iso/.bin/.nrg/.mdf images that contain ISO9660, Joliet, UDF or all three file systems, which on a Windows based system allows all ISO images to be mounted. When using on a laptop, it allows better use of the battery as CD/DVD drives require a large amount of power, especially when the drive is running continuously. Version 2.3.1 has added a new multi-user mounting system. Fixed a Windows Vista explorer drive update issue.
