Virtual ISO drives, any Mac alcohol 120 equivalents?

Hey everyone

Quick question, is there anyway I can mount virtual drives on my Mac? similar to what Alcohol 120% does over on Windows?

I've been doing a little downloading and now i've got quite a few ISO files on my drive, what i'd like to do is just trick my Mac into thinking they're actually disks and be able to just play them without going through spindles of CD's.

Anyone have any ideas and suggestions? It doesn't necessarily have to be though a virtual ISO, I'm just looking for a better alternative to burning to a CD/DVD and ripping it through Hand-brake each time.

If you just click on an iso file it will automatically mount. It treats it just like a dmg file.
