As compared to many similar programs, WinCDEmu does the whole job a lot simpler, turning the whole mounting and unmounting process just a matter of clicks.
The interface of the application is just minimal and the ace up its sleeve is definitely the way it handles ISO file.
Pick a new drive letter before mounting images
The main window for example lets you adjust the so-called “Driver letter policy” which is nothing more than the way the program assigns new driver letter every time you open an ISO image. By default, WinCDEmu always asks before mounting images, letting you pick a new drive letter on the fly.
Set administrator privileges
Additionally, you can set up the app to require administrator privileges to mount an image, which is useful especially on Windows Vista and 7.
As said, it's enough to double click an ISO file to mount a new image, and another double click should complete the unmounting process in no time. Additionally, you can right click the specific drive icon and hit the “Eject” button to perform this task.
Testing its performance
Of course, WinCDEmu remains friendly with computer resources all the time and works okay on all Windows versions. Plus, it supports multiple image formats beside ISO, including NRG, MDS/MDF, IMG, CUE and CCD.
All in all, WinCDEmu may come in handy to many users out there, especially because it makes it so easy to mount an ISO image without having to open the main interface of the application every time.
