This question already has an answer here:

Is there a way to mount a writable disc/image on a virtual drive(e.g. daemon tools)? This is for either Windows XP or Windows 7.

The goal being to write a disc directly to an ISO from software that only sees physical and virtual optical devices. Because the discs are temporary so I don't want to waste physical media.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What about daemon tools doesn't do it for you? Is there something you need that it's lacking? – Uninspired Oct 25 '10 at 4:13
As far as I'm aware ImgBurn and Daemon Tools can't emulated burners. Daemon Tools can mount existing images and create images from files/folders, but you can't use other programs to burn to the virtual drive as though it were a CD-R. – derGral Oct 26 '10 at 17:52

Phantom Burner looks like what you are looking for.

Here is a similar question:

This is exactly what I'm looking for, although I wish the functionality was available in other packages and for less money. – derGral Oct 26 '10 at 17:46
@Ryan, Glad it worked out for you. I agree, I wish both read & write ISO files were built into all OSs. – Scott McClenning Oct 27 '10 at 1:45

Are you looking for something like ImgBurn?

It can create/copy ISOs from real or virtual drives.

I'm looking for the virtual drive side of things, specifically one that emulates a burner, to create images by "burning" to the virtual device. – derGral Oct 26 '10 at 17:53
Burning software has the ability to do a "test burn" if that's what you're looking for. If you're looking to create an ISOs you can use and mount in virtual drives, ImgBurn is a good option. – Force Flow Oct 27 '10 at 4:19
