Mounting images question, need help please



I have been using Alcohol 120% for some time now and have used all programs except Daemon Tools. Since I have 2 sheep burners I have never needed to do emulation or mount images, but instead of carrying around cds with me I would like to mount images now.
My question is, what is the difference between Alcohol 120% virtual drives and daemon tools? What I would like to do is mount SD2,3 protected games and not have to worry about the cds anymore. Do I need to use daemon tools or will alcohol work just as good?


AFAIK Alcohol 120% virtual drives and daemon tools virtual drives are the same…
One developer works on both but i may be wrong…
