Nero ImageDrive enables users to mount an image file, such as an ISO to a virtual drive. A virtual drive works exactly like your physical CD-ROM drive and it is visible in Microsoft Windows Explorer. You are mounting the image file as if you were inserting the actual disc into your CD-ROM drive. Unfortunately, newer versions of Nero do not have Nero ImageDrive and you must visit a website that has older versions of the software.
