'Daemon Tools' for linux?


There was a handy app which I used on windows called 'Daemon Tools'. It basically created a virutal cd drive where I could load images without having to insert the CD. I've been looking around for a similar app that can be used with linux, but no success...

Is there an alternate way of creating a 'virtual drive'?

-Thanks

You can mount ISO9660 (*.iso, *.raw) CD images without any external tools. Try mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /path/to/mountpoint, or use CDemu to mount Goldenhawk-type (.bin/.cue) CD images.

Was looking at the cdemu site (cdemu.sourceforge.net), and it doesn't look like they support anything other than BIN/CUE... Yet...

From cdemu site:

Looking ahead: CDemu was first created to support bin/cue images. Ideally, we'd like to be able to support Nero (.nrg), Disc Juggler (.cdi), Clone CD (.ccd), etc... Anyone with spare time and spare patches would be appreciated

There are no tools to mount MDS/MDF images... However I can report that 'UltraISO' works perfectly under WINE - I've just used it to convert some MDFs to ISO and burn them with cdrecord as usual :)

http://www.ezbsystems.com/ultraiso/download.htm

It's shareware and will need registered before it will save a file over 300MB, but I can confirm that when you use a valid serial number, the program works in full mode :)

Cheers,
Gavin.
