  1. ^ ^ Creates: Specifies whether the application can create a new disc image file, either by capturing the image of an actual disc or by composing a disc image file from locally-stored files.
  2. ^ ^ Modifies: Specifies whether the application is able to manipulate the contents of an existing disc image file, including adding, changing or deleting files within or modifying disc image metadata.
  3. ^ ^ Mounts: Specifies whether the application can emulate an optical disc drive. Such an application treats a disc image file like a virtual disc and virtually inserts it into that emulated virtual drive.
  4. ^ ^ Restores: Specifies whether the application can write the contents of a disk image file onto a physical media (such as an optical disc, a floppy disk, a hard disk drive or a USB pendrive) and create a physical replica.
  5. ^ ^ Extracts: Specifies whether the application can copy some or all of the files within a disc image file to somewhere else.
  6. ^ ^ Input: Specifies the types of disc image formats that the application can open.
  7. ^ ^ Output: Specifies the types of disc image formats that the application can save to.
