WinCDEmu Integrates Image Mounting Into Windows Explorer

Windows only: WinCDEmu makes it easy to quickly mount and access the contents of CD and DVD image files you’ve extracted or downloaded.

Once installed, WinCDEmu adds an entry to your right-click context menu. Anytime you right-click on a supported image format—ISO, CUE, BIN, and IMG—you’ll be able to mount it with a single click. From there, you can access the disc contents with any application or by browsing to the disc itself. To unmount the image, head into My Computer and eject the drive, or right-click on the actual image file and unmount it from there.

If you’re frequently mounting and un-mounting disk images, make sure to check out Gizmo Drive, a virtual drive management tool. WinCDEmu is freeware, Windows only. WinCDEmu [via Freeware Genius]


  • i have used Daemon Tools for as long as i can remember and it seems to be the most complete image mounting program for windows, it has plugin support and there are many customizations for it including shell extension (integrating into the right click menu) as well as scripts that open a particular file when you mount a specific image(good for launching a game or media presentation you have stored as an iso or such).
