Virtual CloneDrive works and behaves just like a physical CD, DVD, or Blu-ray drive, although it only exists virtually. Image files can be "inserted" into the virtual drive from your harddisk or from a network drive by just a double-click, and thus be used like a normal CD, DVD, or Blu-ray. Virtual CloneDrive supports up to 15 virtual drives at the same time - no matter if the image file contains audio, video or just simple data. Virtual CloneDrive is fully integrated in Windows Explorer context menus and on top of all it is free!


  • Mounts images as virtual drive
  • Supports all common image formats such as ISO, BIN, IMG, UDF, DVD, and CCD
  • Emulation of CD, DVD, and Blu-ray media
  • Supports up to 15 virtual drives at the same time
  • History of recently mounted images
  • Automount last image
  • Unmount image with eject button
  • Seamless integration in Windows Explorer context menu
  • Easy to use - just double-click an image file to mount as a drive
  • Virtual CloneDrive is freeware, you may use it at no cost
