ISO disk images are the industry standard when it comes to the optical disk images. Most of the Linux variations line Ubuntu, Mint, Debian etc. are distributed in form of downloadable ISO images. Typically you have to download the ISO files and then use a software like ImgBurn to burn these disk images to a blank CD or DVD. But why waste your blank optical media when you can view and use the ISO images right inside Windows without having to write then on the media. The freeware software DVDFab Virtual Drive lets you load ISO images into Windows and use them like real disk drives. It supports loading of CD/DVD and BlueRay ISO images.The DVDFab Virtual Drive software is an optical drive emulator which can emulate upto 18 virtual drives on your Windows system. This means that you can load upto 18 different ISO images at the same time on your computer. It also supports loading of other types of less common images like BIN, NRG and UDF. After the installation, it creates an icon in the system tray through which you can access the settings like number of virtual drives, recently used ISO images etc.
