What is Daemon Tools Lite?
Daemon Tools Lite is a version of the Daemon Tools virtual drive emulator. It basically emulates that you have a CD/DVD drive on your system when you may not actually have one installed. This allows you to boot a CD or DVD image that is stored on your hard drive; these images can be games, movies or other applications. This lets you download ISO or MDS images ripped from the actual source and play them on your computer without installing a CD/DVD drive. It also runs faster than a hardware-installed drive which makes things smoother during the playback process.
How to use Daemon Tools Lite
First, you want to download Daemon Tools Lite and install it on your system. When you open it for the first time, you will have to set what you will call the drive. If you already have a CD/DVD drive installed, you want to ensure there are no conflicts with what is already installed. Once the drive is set, you can mount ISO, MDS or other mountable images. You right click on the logo in the toolbar to change settings, preferences and other ways you utilize Daemon Tools Lite. You left click to mount the image and begin using what you want to watch, play or interact with.
What can you do with Daemon Tools Lite
Daemon Tools Lite is used to do two things: You can use it to emulate a CD, DVD, HD or Blu Ray Drive and you can use it to create disc images from external media. Just by installing Daemon Tools, you have access to utilizing it as an emulation device for a drive installed of installing one. You then download or gain access to mountable images, mount them and use them just like you would if you had the disc, popped it into the drive and booted it up from there.
If you want to create images to store on your hard drive, you need the next version of Daemon Tools to do it. You simply pop in what you want to create as a mountable image, let Daemon Tools run through the process and then you have an ISO or MDS image to run, share or use in other ways without actually needing the disc to do so. Daemon Tools now supports creating mountable images from CD, DVD, HD or Blu Ray discs.
