Windows 7 – Virtual DVD/CD ROM Support

Today I needed to mount a few ISO files to complete some installs.  It seems this area is a little fragile. Heading through the install process I found that unfortunately MagicDisc and Daemon Tools didn’t like Windows 7 and failed to install or work.  The two I have successfully been able to run with Windows 7 are PowerISO and Virtual CloneDrive.

The list below are of my successfully installed Virtual DVD/CD ROM applications on Windows 7 Beta, build 7000:

  • PowerISO v4.3
  • Virtual CloneDrive v5.4.1.1

The list below are the applications which have failed to install or work as a Virtual DVD/CD ROM drive on my system:

  • Daemon Tools
  • MagicDisc

If you find Daemon Tools or MagicDisc to work on Windows 7 Beta, build 7000, then let me know. Hopefully this will help you quickly pick which one to install when attempting this process.
