Daemon Tools won't create images, just mount them, audio cd images are no problem. You've to use a cd recording software which creates supported image files (e.g. CloneCD ccd, Nero nrg, Alcohol mds, CDRWin cue/bin, ISOs ...).
The size depends on the size of the original cd, usually it's between 650 and 850 MB, due to the fact that images are based on RAW sectors (2352 bps) they're bigger than the file size on a cd (based on so-called cooked sectors, 2048 bps);
if you include sub-channel data (e.g. for protections or cd text) another 96 bps will be needed (i.e. 2448 bps).

If you use ntfs compression, you might be able to save 60-80% space.
