There are plenty of free tools out there that allow you to mount disc images as virtual drives, but Passmark’s OSFMount offers a bit of additional functionality. Apart from being able to mount everything from ISOs to raw DD (a Unix imaging tool) images to VMWare virtual disks, OSFMount can also extend and format certain types. Images may also be mounted as a RAM drive, which can yield better read/write performance. It’s important to note that while OSFMount can mount a DD image, it won’t do you any good if the filesystem isn’t something supports — like EXT2/3/4 or HPFS, for example
