Daemon Tools (styled DAEMON Tools by its creators) is a disk image emulator and optical disc authoring program for Microsoft Windows. Daemon Tools was originally a furtherance in the development of another program, Generic SafeDisc emulator, and incorporated all of its features. The program claims to be able to defeat most copy protection schemes such as SafeDisc and SecuROM.[2] It is currently compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. DAEMON Tools has a special mode for proper operation of copies of discs with advanced protection (SafeDisc (C-Dilla), SecuRom and LaserLock, CDCOPS, StarForce and Protect CD), which are used on some discs with games.[3]

Editions

Versions prior to v4.00 had only one edition. That edition was freeware, had no adware, and was solely an imaging disc-emulation software (no image conversion, creation, burning, and so forth).

Currently, four editions of the product exist: Lite, Pro Standard, Pro Advanced, and Net. DAEMON Tools Net is an enterprise-oriented edition containing modern network features. A feature comparison is given below:[4]

Y.A.S.U (Yet Another SecuROM Utility) is a very small tool that works as a "SCSI-drive protector". It was created by sYk0, who also created CureROM (but CureROM uses an alternative method to protect SCSI drives) It’s a simple utility that can be used to hide emulated drives from SecuROM 7 and SafeDisc 4. YASU is a companion program for Daemon Tools and currently being hosted, supported and maintained by the Daemon Tools team. On March 4 of 2009, sYk0 announced development of Omen which is to succeed development of YASU.[7] As of January 2010, development of Omen has been abandoned.[8]
