    Hi there
    you don't need any reg things or whatever if you have the CUE file with the image file.

    With CUE TOOLS you can run the program to convert the audio back into tracks in flac or what format you need -- then use any piece of software you like to convert these tracks into an audio iso. Then W10 mounts iso's natively -- just play the CD as an audio cd or even write to a CD if you want to.

    CUE TOOLS is a brilliant piece of software -works great on W10 too.

    audio iso
    Oh my Gods...

    There are many things I don't understand; however, I try hard not to comment them. Please do the same.

    not sure what you mean here.

    the diagram and explanation seemed easy enough -- in any case aren't we all here also to learn things as well or try out possibly easier solutions not requiring obsolete software (e,g Daemon tools)

    In any case format of an audio cd (iso) is quite well known --the tracks appear on it when browsed by file explorer etc as xxxx.cda, xxxx.cda etc with a unique identifier which is used by ripping programs to get track info from various databases e.g gracenote, freedb etc.

    We are talking about just playing CD-DA images, not converting to other formats.
    No reason to make flac mp3 etc files if CD-DA image can be played directly.

    CD-DA (Compact Disc Digital Audio) IS NOT ISO9660 CD-ROM disc.
    Their images have different formats, only the second is ISO file.
    Consequently, "Audio ISO" is nonsense.

    Your opinion on "obsolete software" is irrelevant and wrong; people just want to use it.

    Daemon tools has lost it's simple elegance, and the new Lite version wants to download files for over 24 hours (I am not making that up). It's not that expensive but I want to know it works before spending money, and I want an offline installer anyway. I also don't want to rely on an internet connection just to make a program work - my connection isn't good enough for crap like that, not to mention adware sucks, which, I suppose, means daemon tools sucks now too. WinCDEmu does not handle bin/cue files. I've looked at a few others but Win10 doesn't want to allow any of them.

    This workaround did not work for me. ulozto.net wants me to register just to get a little file so I tried using daemon347. Apologies but I won't run a binary reg file where I cannot see the content.

    Does anybody have any other suggestions?

    Hi there

    @Riplee

    Still confused as to what you want to do

    If you just want to copy the original Disc to an iso file then in Linux it's really simple

    sudo dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/username/image.iso where the iso file is an audio iso file which can be copied to windows 10 and also mounted without any problems.

    If just to play these things surely VLC does it.

    If you want to mount and convert to discrete tracks did you try cue tools -- I sent a link a few posts back in this thread.

    Cue tools will get the tracks back and you can then save as flac/mp3 or whatever and use any standard software to play including VLC -- VLC might play the cue/bin combo directly.

    Personally I'd just mount a Live Linux Distro (or a VM) - copy the original CD to an iso using the command I gave above and then that iso will mount on W10 as an audio CD and can be played normally with your preferred software.

    I'm not exactly sure of what you are trying to achieve though.

    If you don't want to try the Linux method have a go with CUE TOOLS (free of course)

    Cheers

    There is nothing to be confused about. The original question, which has not been answered satisfactorily, still stands. Daemon tools was the go-to program for mounting virtual drives. In this case there has been particular focus and emphasis on cue/bin pairing. But Windows 10 won't run it. Nothing else handles the job, and the updated Daemon tools is rubbish. Hence the problem. What program will function, will mount virtual drives, with the ease and stability previously delivered by Daemon tools? It's that easy. That is the question that has not been answered.

    Nobody is inquiring about copying or converting files. We're talking Windows 10, not Linux. This is, after all, tenforums.com. We are not talking about what is done with the file(s) once they're/it's mounted. The player is beside the point. If it won't mount, it won't play. Cue tools may very well be a wonderful tool but your mention of it is irrelevant because there is no file corruption or problem. There is no repair to be made. There is nothing to "get back". We are NOT talking about iso files. And while your suggestion of using a linux live cd has merit in some scenarios, it doesn't in the present case (1) because we're talking windows 10, and (2) because we're talking about cue/bin pairing.

    **I'm not exactly sure of what you are trying to achieve though**

    I don't mean to be rude but if you bother to read anything above, you'll see we are talking, and have been from the very beginning, about methods of mounting CUE/BIN file pairs under Windows 10. If you don't know what that is or why somebody would want to use them, that's not a problem. Just start a topic of your own and inquire. This isn't the place for it. Suffice for the moment, however, that an ISO file is NOT a substitute for a CUE/BIN configuration - and it never will be.


    Now. With that said and out of the way...

    I did a web search for "MagicDisc + Windows 10" which lead to a post on microsoft which suggested, similar to above, that a process telling "How to Disable Driver Signature Verification on 64-Bit Windows 8 or 10 (So That You Can Install Unsigned Drivers)" on howtogeek.com might solve the problem. Interesting theory and process that did not work for me. However...

    Alcohol 52% has a free version. I don't know for sure but I 'think' it doesn't expire. Instead of expiring, it limits the user to one virtual drive at a time. I just installed it, and it worked on the first cue/bin pair I tried. However, there is a caveat I should mention. The 'trial' version expires in two weeks, and versions delivered from software vending sites are vague about time limits and they bundle other unwanted stuff with it, so by all means be careful. If you opt to go this route, use the custom install option and disable as much as you can. Mean-time, I'll assume the free version does not expire but will return and report if I hit any brick walls. I don't know if I require 31 drives and I think the $27 price tag is steep for what it is. I'll probably content myself with one drive at a time. This is by no means ideal, but it's the best I've found so far.
