Best no-cost image mounting software for Vista 64 bit?

  1. What are your recommendations for image mounting software/virtual drives? Software included with my motherboard and DVD burner let me create image files (.iso and .nrg), but do not have a provision to read these directly from the hard drive, only to burn to a DVD. I've read that the Nero software I have (Essentials 8 OEM) does not allow image mounting with Vista.

    I'm mainly interested in watching movies or playing games that I already own, so I can safely store the disks. I'm not interested so much in burning backups to DVD, or at all in downloading someone else's files.

    Although I am a fairly experienced computer user, a simple GUI that lets me do what I want is more important to me than a very complex program or command line interface.

    Some I have been considering are:
    Daemon tools
    Alcohol 52%
    Virtual Clone Drive

    Thanks in advance!

    I use Deamon tools, its an icon by the clock and you just click it to load an image, simple neat and does the job.
