Have you ever downloaded an .iso cdrom image of a program you want to use but don’t want to waste a CD burning it?

Well asides from burning it to a CD-RW (which is typically slower than a CD-R) you can use the Microsoft Virtual CD tool for Windows XP. It lets you access the iso image as if it was a CD in your drive.

Its not an end-user tool with a pretty GUI but it is light and works well. After installing the driver you can add a virtual cdrom drive and mount the .iso files as if they were real CDs. Perfect for checking out a iso images contents or for use in a quality control environment.
