Are you also sorry if a program that has just been started does not want to run without an additional CD-ROM? Or, even more annoying: Do you want to swiftly switch between several programs, but unfortunately “cries” each of them for his CD or DVD? If you sometimes feel like a DJ at the computer, “Virtual CD” can make your job easier. This program pretends that the PC has additional CD-ROM drives. In these so-called virtual drives, you copy your most important CD-ROMs or favorite DVDs, which are always available to you on the hard disk, while the original disk remains safely in the cabinet. In total, up to 23 virtual drives can be created in parallel.
With a built-in virtual burner, the software virtually “burns” CDs and DVDs, eliminating the need for a physical blank or a CD / DVD burner. According to the manufacturer, all programs with integrated burn function are supported. You can “insert” the created image on the hard disk directly into a virtual drive in order to test the CD or DVD or to use it immediately. An encryption function should also ensure a high level of security for confidential data. If desired, the image created by “Virtual CD” can also be burned onto physical media.
The real burning of so-called images on CD and DVD is possible with the program. This will allow you to make a physical copy in the case of a damaged or lost original CD. Furthermore, 1: 1 copies of unprotected media can be created. Practical: The “Image Converter” ensures that ISO-compatible images can be converted by other burning programs, used with “Virtual CD” and burned to a blank. The reverse way (converting virtual CD images to ISO format) is also possible. And the “Automatic Copy” mode makes the image creation even more comfortable, since the required settings are automatically determined. What sounds complicated, thanks to a successful interface, even for beginners no problem. You simply insert the CD to be copied into the drive.
