Default How to Mount or Watch .ISO Image Files with DAEMON Tools

In common use, an "ISO" file is a single file that contains the complete image of a disc. Such files are often used when transferring CD-ROM images over the Internet.

In this guide I will be showing you how to mount a ".ISO" image in a virtual drive to play/watch it.

First thing you need to do is download DAEMON Tools if you haven't already. You can download it here.




Once you have installed and started DAEMON tools, you should now see a "lightning bolt" icon (green) next to your PC clock. [Screen Shot Below]






Go ahead and right click that icon and then left click "VIRTUAL CD/DVD-ROM" , then left click "Set number of devices...", then decide on how many virtual drives you wish to have. For this tutorial I only choose "1 drive" (red). [Screen Shot Below]






After that, go ahead and right click that "lightning bolt" icon again, left click "VIRTUAL CD/DVD-ROM" again. Then left click "Device 0: [*Letter*] No media", then left click "Mount image" (blue). [Screen Shot Below]

Then on the screen that pops up, navigate to where your ISO file is to mount it to the virtual drive. When you find it, click it once then click the "Open" button (purple). [Screen Shot Below]






After clicking the "Open" button, it will act just like you put a DVD in. It will ask you what you want windows to do. Either pick a task for it to follow or cancel it and do your own thing if the program you want to use is not listed there. [Screen Shot Below]






Ok your finished with loading the image.

Now if you go to "My Computer", you will see a "extra" drive listed there (red). That is the "virtual drive" created by DAEMON Tools. [Screen Shot Below]






To remove it, right click that icon and then left click "VIRTUAL CD/DVD-ROM" , then left click "Set number of devices...", then click "Disable".

POOF! Its gone!

Thanks for the guide.

I checked the web site and saw two programs of DAEMON (same version). Which one should I use if my computer is window XP pro SP2 operating system.

Please download the "DAEMON Tools 4.0.3 X86" which is the first one on the download page

Should I download the 32bit daemon tools for Window XP?

My processor is an AMD Sempron 3100+.

VLC Media player is a lot easier to use, it plays .ISO files.

Playing them is one thing. Mounting them gives you access to them as if they were DVD drives.

Daemon tools is terrific. ISOBuster is also a great tool for examining and extracting stuff from ISOs.

i use alcohol 120% for virtual drives-- makes things so much easier. i have office 2003, photoshop & encarta 2006 on a single dvd. same with games, eg GTA 1, 2, 3, Vice City & San Andreas on a single disc

daemon tools occasionally for the real tough "un-backup-able" games

How does alcohol differ from daemon tools in the way it deals with mounted disc images?

I don't trust alcohol 120%, I have tested daemon tools and found it to be
a safe program. Course I didn't trust daemon till I tested it.

dunno, not my forte. though as i said it does a better job with some of the real tough games. i simply don't like deamon tools or any app that tries to install adware
