    "Serious BUGS on Win XP -- Do Not Use"

    May 21, 2008   |   By Aeneas32

    Version: Original CD Emulator 2.15

    Pros

    This program used to perform the fake cd function. It should not be used on Windows XP anymore until fixed.

    Cons

    Installing this program causes Windows Explorer to hang and fail to completely open. Bug also interferes with most file opening operations on Windows XP SP2. Works for maybe an 30 minues, maybe 5 hours, seldom more than a day. Then this bug forces the user to power cycle or reset the PC.

    After fully uninstalling OCDE (with Control Panel//Add or Remove Programs), installing another cd emulator, first try was Daemon ToolsPro Demo, worked fine.

    "Please proceed directly back to drawing board!"

    January 27, 2006   |   By kowalskisan

    Version: Original CD Emulator 2.15

    Pros

    Nada zip zilch -why do I have to give it one star? A big zero! Not useful at all.

    Cons

    An hour of my time entirely wasted. Installed program, fought through poor documentation to create "virtual cd". Tried to access "drive" - 100% locked up my Windows XP - rebooted, same story. Rebooted, uninstalled, hopefully this poor software left no trace behind! Still looking!

    "Nice!"

    October 25, 2004

    Version: Original CD Emulator 2.15

    Summary

    Works flawlessly.
    Nice documentation.

    Easy start:

    1. RightClick in the down-right panel and click add file
    2. Select an ISO file
    3. Drag that file to the CD icon in the topbar.
    4. Access the files on the virtual drive

    "Simple Program that Works Perfectly!"

    May 26, 2004

    Version: Original CD Emulator 2.15

    Summary

    This program does exactly what it should do! It is image drive software meaning that it takes a CD image (ISO file) and makes windows think that you just put the actual CD in your drive. It will even autorun the ISO! An excellent piece of software for those games that require you to have the CD in your drive to play. Just copy the ISO to your hard drive and you can keep the original CD safe and unscratched while still enjoying the game! It took a minute to figure out the controls but after that it is perfect! This program will even make images! Nero is unneeded!

    "May have worked, but only off ISOs - if you have them"

    November 11, 2003

    Version: Original CD Emulator 2.15

    Summary

    I wanted to have a directory of mine served as if it was a CD, but no, I have to burn an ISO image of it first.
    But the prog doesn't let me create my own ISOs - only images of existing CDs. No good for me - I don't want to mess around with a CD-burner - the whole point for me is that I'm running a laptop with no CD drive, let alone a burner.
