Daemon Tools Ultra is a premium imaging software created by Disc Soft. As an imaging program, the main purpose of Daemon Tools Ultra is to burn and mount disc images. These can take the form of .iso, .daa, or .cue files, among others. With this program, you can take any data disc, such as a movie dvd, a game disc, or a music CD, and create a virtual copy of its entire contents. From there, you are free to extract whatever data you want from the disc image, and can even copy it onto a blank DVD to make an exact duplicate.

In addition to these features, Daemon Tools Ultra allows you to take image files you've ripped and 'mount' them to your computer. Through the mounting process, this program creates a virtual disc drive to run your virtual image. This means your computer sees an additional physical disc drive, with a physical disc inside it. With this mounting technology, you can run copied disc images without your computer or the disc software realizing that there is no actual physical disc to run! This process is even able to trick many copy-protection programs, like SecuROM and SafeDisc, making it very useful for ripping and mounting games.

Many features that are offered by Daemon Tools Ultra can be accessed with one of their free versions of Daemon Tools, but there are a few extra features that make the Ultra version more appealing. For starters, only Daemon Tools Ultra allows you to edit the images you rip from discs, and it also lets you mount images on computers that are connected remotely. These and other features make Daemon Tools Ultra an indispensable piece of computer software!
