Hello people!

i have a question regarding the best, safe and free (and probably open source) Virtual Drive emulator.

what software can you recommend?

i read somewhere that Daemon tools lite and alcohol have spywares. and poweriso is not free. i am now choosing between Magic Iso and Virtual CloneDrive?

which one should I choose?

Are either of them safe?

I am running a 64-bit Windows 7 and Windows XP.

I am using Windows Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel on my XP but i read somewhere that this wont work in Windows 7.

I would like to still use this on my windows 7 if someone has a work around for it to work.

Thanks!

Daemon Tools is fine on its own providing you don't agree to install everything it wants you to. I haven't seen it for a while but I think it will ask to install a toolbar or something that isn't part of the software. If you opt not to use that you'll be fine.
The XP control panel icon doesn't work in Windows 7.

There are many applications that do the same job.
The best thing to do is find one, such as MagicISO, download it and try it. If you like it, then good. If not, get rid and find something else.
I don't like to go down the route of "I recommend this, that and the other" because what I like may be somebody else's hate.
