WinCDEmu makes it easy to mount an ISO image simply by double clicking on the file inside of Windows Explorer. When compared to the other programs on the market, this one is capable of doing the job in a simpler matter because the mounting/unmounting process is completed with just a few clicks.
The application’s interface is not much to look at – it takes a very minimalistic approach. This is fine because it is able to handle the ISO file in an efficient manner. You can adjust the Drive letter policy from the main window, which ultimately lets you program a new driver letter when you open the ISO image. The program will also ask you before mounting an image so you can pick a new letter drive at any time.
When you set up WinCDEmu, you will be able to set it for administrator, which means that only an administrator will be able to mount an image, something particularly useful when you are on Vista or 7 of Windows. All you have to do is double click the file in order to mount the image. Double click it again and it is unmounted. You can always right click and ‘Eject’ for the process to occur as well.
WinCDEmu is friendly with system resources, so it can run in the background without problems. There are also other forms that it supports beyond ISO. This includes NRG, IMG, CUE, CCD and MDS. The program has come in handy for a variety of reasons and there is no reason to go into the interface every time because of how it uses the regular Windows Explorer features to your advantage.
Key features of WinCDEmu include:
- Mounting and unmounting is easy
- Supports a variety of formats
- Runs on Windows OS versions XP to 7
- Rename drive letters easily
A few new features have been added including ISO image support for CDs and DVDs and autorun can be disabled.
This program is competitive with the other products on the market for ISO images and this one simplifies the process, making it the popular choice.
