Emulates your computer's CD/DVD-ROM drive, which enables you to run CD and DVD programs directly from your HDD
VirtualDrive CD/DVD Emulator Pro is a very useful CDDVD emulation utility that will come in handy.
Are you tired of scratching or losing your favorite PC games or CDs? Of swapping out discs and waiting for them to load? Or of just having to lug all those CDs and DVDs around?
VirtualDrive 10 is a CD emulator: software that copies a CD or unprotected DVD as a compressed image, or "virtual CD," which you can play in place of original discs in any one of up to 23 "virtual drives" that the software creates.
Virtual CDs can be shared over a network or transported on a laptop computer or USB device. They run directly on the hard drive, saving wear and tear on your CD-ROM drive and extending the battery life of laptop computers.
A virtual CD has access speeds nearly 200 times faster than a CD-ROM, greatly accelerating the performance of PC games, photo CDs, and disc-based applications.
VirtualDrive copies an entire CD or DVD as a compressed disc-image file, or virtual disc. This virtual CD contains a driver that fools Windows into treating it as if it were a physical CD running in a CD-ROM drive.
VirtualDrive lets you create up to 23 virtual CD/DVD-ROM drives and an unlimited number of virtual CDs and DVDs. You can configure as many virtual drives as you have available drive letters, and run multiple virtual CDs simultaneously, swapping them out without having to wait for them to load or spin up.
