So, recently I have upgraded my laptop from Windows Vista to Windows 7. The upgrade process was straight forward and flawless and everything so far was OK except one thing: the Daemon Tools that I've been using for mapping .ISO image files since 2004 on various Windows systems refuses to work on Windows 7. Even Windows 7 compatibility mode does not help: Daemon Tools manages to recognize Windows 7 anyways. Luckily there is another tool that provides with absolutely the same functionality and also free: Magic Disc. It works under Windows 7 flawlessly and really makes my life easier: no need to burn ISO files on CD/DVD anymore.
