Advanced emulation options are available for SCSI virtual devices only (require SCSI device to be installed) which require SPTD driver. In its turn SPTD driver can lead to some issues depending on your system configuration and anti-virus software installed. So it's recommended to keep these options disabled excluding the case of image with special signature marked as 'NEEDS EMULATION' or 'NEEDS RMPS'.

info
  • RMPS — Most modern protected discs are manufactured in such a way that they cannot be duplicated on a CD-R/DVD-R easily because burning devices are not capable to record all protection information on usual media. To create personal backups of such discs a special technique was developed called Removable Media Physical Signature (RMPS): the burning application extracts additional information from the image and appends it to the normal data on the CD-R/DVD-R via special signature written to disc during burning process. At the same time label of media is modified to 'NEEDS EMULATION' or 'NEEDS RMPS...' to indicate that for proper operation RMPS emulation must be activated. If you encounter such a disc you need enable RMPS emulation in DAEMON Tools. Once RMPS emulation is activated you need to eject and reinsert disc: if it is recognized then you will see the original disc's label and all additional data from original image will be emulated by DAEMON Tools Lite. The only burning application today which can create RMPS discs is DAEMON Tools Pro. RMPS is effective for the below following protections.
  • SafeDisc, SecuROM, LaserLock — Some CD writers cannot write RAW data or complete subchannel data needed for these copy protections. If a 1:1 image does not work because of these limitations, activate the appropriate emulation for DAEMON Tools Lite to work around this limitation.
