VirtualDVD 5.9.0.0
Quickly mount most images files as a virtual CD, DVD or Blu-ray

VirtualDVD gives easy access to CD, DVD or Blu-ray images by mounting them as virtual drives, which means you'll no longer have to burn them to discs.

After a simple installation VirtualDVD adds a single virtual disc drive to Explorer. Right-click its system tray icon, select Virtual Devices, choose that drive then "Mount Image" and you'll be prompted for your disc image. The program supports plenty of formats, including CloneCD (*.ccd), CDRWin (*.bin), Cue Sheets (*.cue), CDImage (*.img), ISO (*.iso), BlindRead (*.bwt), BlindWrite (*.b5t; *.b6t), Alcohol 120% Image (*.mds;*.mdf), Disc Juggler (*.cdi), Instant CD/DVD (*.pdi), Compressed ISO (*.isz), Nero (*.nrg), CloneDVD (*.dvd) and CDSpace6 (*.LCD).

Once mounted, the disc becomes available in Explorer just as though it was a physical drive. And this can be customised to a degree via the usual Windows tools (you can change its region, drive letter and so on).

You're also able to add further virtual drives, if necessary. Right-click the system tray icon, select Preferences, and set "Count" to the number of devices you need (up to a maximum of 24).

One issue we noticed immediately is the almost total lack of documentation. There's nothing provided with the program itself, and the online help is just a list of features.

Still, to be fair VirtualDVD is so simple that you probably won't need any assistance - it's just a quick and easy tool which will give you speedy access to drive images.

Please note, VirtualDVD will by default install adware on your PC, change your browser home and search pages, and more. You can avoid all of this, but only if you pay attention during setup and choose the appropriate options.

Version 5.9 brings, apparently:
    * Stabilization of the internal function
    * Apply the installation ad

Verdict:

A basic but easy-to-use virtual drive with support for mounting a wide range of image formats

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
