Emulation Software That Has it Covered

Daemon Tools Pro 8 is the latest generation of the well-known, professional level emulation software tool. It is a powerful package which works with both disc images and virtual drives.

Get Emulating Without Fuss

The new version of Daemon Tools has even more professional features, such as allowing users to grab images from physical discs under advanced parameter settings. You can store sensitive or private data in TrueCrypt containers with the emulation tool. Indeed Daemon Tools Pro 8 even allows for the emulation of no less than 32 different DT, HD and SCSI drives together with a total of four separate IDE devices. It is also possible for users to attach virtual drives to physical ones and to emulate a physical disc burning back-up process with the 'Virtual Burner' module. It is ideal for anyone who wants to create new audio CD or data images as well as to edit existing ones. Finally, it is even possible to use DAEMON Tools Pro 8 via Windows Explorer and to customize the main window and the image editing interface.
