    After trying out ImgBurn which is recommended by @Tech Support Staff 1 and @Tech Support Staff 2, I got this Duplex STPD warning message on imgburn.

    following some research, people said that it's part of Daemon Tools Lite which I have and probably made the burning process slower than normal (which I'm experiencing right now, writing speed is varying a lot below 1.0 x speed according to imgburn). Alcohol 120 apparently has it too.

    so, any suggestions for things other than Daemon/Alcohol which does not have this Duplex STPD stuff?
    mainly for mounting disc image files purposes.
    from more reading, some people suggested Virtual Clone Drive but I want to know if there are better programs, so here I am asking you IT guys for your insights.

    I started using virtual clone drive when windows 7 came out since daemon tools wouldn't work for me anymore and have used it ever since.

      I honestly have never had any problems with Daemon Tools Lite, but I really only use it for mounting iso.'s and images and whatnot. What exactly is this Duplex STPD problem?

      some people said that Duplex STPD driver have performance issues in burning images to discs, while others said that the newest STPD drivers no longer have the issue.
      the world can never agree to anything.

      I use PowerISO... It can burn images, mount images, anything you want... Compatible with most image file types as well... It's a little confusing to work at first, but once you get the hang of it, it works really well... Haven't really needed to use it except to burn the odd disc here and there, since Windows 8 has a built in Virtual Drive function, which is totally awesome.

      I've used Daemon for many years since mid XP lifespan. STPD is related to Daemon virtual drive but it should only bother you if you burning something and you specify the Virtual Drive as the drive instead of the physical one.

      PowerISO is probably most other favorites beside Daemon Lite
