gBurner Virtual Drive
Create up to 16 virtual CD/ DVD/ Blu-ray drives

GBurner Virtual Drive is a free utility for creating and managing virtual CD/ DVD drives.

The program enables you to equip your PC with up to 16 virtual drives, each of which may be used to mount a CD or DVD image. (And apparently Blu-ray images, too, although the gBurner website doesn't claim Blu-ray support.) This means you'll always have access to the disc contents, with risking any damage to the physical media - and the developers suggest performance may be as much as 200x faster, too.

GBurner Virtual Drive installs easily and without incident, and by default adds a single virtual drive to your system. Any time you want to use this, right-click the gBurner system tray icon, select "Mount image file...", choose your disc image and it'll immediately be accessible from Explorer.

If you'd like to add more drives, right-click the system tray icon and select "Set Number of Drives". Click Options > Automount to automatically reload the images when your PC boots. And if you need to define exactly which drive letter each virtual drive uses on your system, click Options > Configuration > Edit and set everything up as you'd like.

There's nothing too advanced here. No shell integration, no command line interface, no tools for creating and managing disc images in the first place. DAEMON Tools Lite, or perhaps IMDISK Toolkit have much more power.

GBurner Virtual Drive has the core functionality you need, though. It's easy to use, and supports the following image types:
 
ISO, GBI / GBP (gBurner), DAA (PowerISO), NRG (Nero), MDF / MDS (Alcohol), BIN / CUE (CDRWin), UIF (MagicISO), ISZ (UltraISO), ASHDISC (Ashampoo), DMG (Apple Mac), GI (RecordNow), BWI / B5I (BlindWrite), IMG (CloneCD), CDI (DiscJugger), PDI (InstantCopy), NCD (NTI CD-Maker), LCD (CDSpace), CIF (Easy CD/DVD Creator), P01 (Gear), PXI (PlexTools), C2D (WinOnCD), FCD (Virtual CD-ROM), VCD (Virtual Drive Image Files)

Verdict:

There are no frills or extras here, but gBurner Virtual Drive is still a likeable virtual CD/ DVD drive creator with support for a good range of image formats.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.7

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
