    Hi all i am looking for a Virtual CD Drive, that I can mount and unmount images and hide/unhide the drives, Something similar to Nero Image Drive but freeware that will work with Vista & XP?

    Thanks in advance

    Go here

    Free CD / DVD Emulators, Virtual CD/DVD Drives (thefreecountry.com)

    scroll down a bit on the page and you will see a list of free ones

    Link below for the unsupported MS one they did a while back ( think its for xp )

    http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/620/x..._burning_them/

    wikipedia article here that lists a number of them and states in the features column ( 2nd column ) what it supports and mount would be the feature you are after afaik

    I recommend Virtual CloneDrive - mounts ISO files a treat, is freeware and also works well with ISO building powertools from MS (under XP, Vista and Win 7)

    SlySoft's Virtual CloneDrive (as mentioned above) or WinCDEmu. The latter is open source too.

    Another program I completely forgot about, and that's worth a mention is Pismo File Mount. The best thing about this compared to the others above, is that it allows you to mount ISOs as folders which therefore allows you to edit the contents if you select the read/write option when mounting the image.
