ImgDrive is a application for users who need a simple, reliable drive emulator that enables them to mount disc image files saved to various formats. It is very easy to use and does a good job of staying out of your way, as it rests in the system tray.

  • Support up to 7 virtual drives at the same time
  • Support Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10
  • Support multi session disc image (CCD/MDS/NRG)
  • ImgDrive is freeware, you may use it at no cost
  • A special portable version is available
Support File Type
  • .CCD - CloneCD image files
  • .CUE - Cue sheets files of APE/FLAC/TTA/WAV/WV/BIN

Not tested, but of course it's not "portable"

Possible alternative to Portable WinCDEmu

I have not tested ImgDrive thoroughly (for example I have not played with Create ISO Image and Copy Disc) but my first impressions (of the installer version) are very good, I prefer it to the more powerful commercial program I have, for example, in contrast with the commercial program, after installation ImgDrive doesn't require restart to mount virtual drives and the user may specify the driver letter for the virtual drive. The so-called portable version is a kind of portable- after the work is completed the user can unload the drive. The program is continuously updated but the latest installer- 1.4.5 (ImgDrive_1.4.5.exe) is actually version 1.4.7, while the archive is at version 1.4.5 (ImgDrivePortable_1.4.5.zip). Several screens:

Although ImgDrive is not open-source and the GitHub Project is for translations only one can submit other problems and suggestions at the Issues Page too.

I suppose that ImgDrive may turn commercialware or donationware, see screens below:

The last version which didn't have registration box was 1.4.5.

This is How to Reguster page which is accessible only from the registration box help button.

Since I do not like 'registration' menus I will switch back to version 1.4.5. I suppose that "Many minor changes" from Change Log means registration.

The "portable" version looks like this:

So far there is no "Registration" for the portable version.
