"Network hog?"

July 03, 2015  |  By PJL500

2015-07-03 18:15:00  |  By PJL500

 |  Version: Virtual CD-RW 1.1.4

Pros

Cannot remember.

Cons

In activity monitor it was the most active network hog and I only used it as a demo a couple of years ago. It is still communicating all the time? Uninstalled immediately.

Summary

Not for everyone.

"Allows iTunes to burn virtual discs in OS X Mavericks"

December 28, 2013  |  By chrs2

2013-12-28 23:47:04  |  By chrs2

 |  Version: Virtual CD-RW 1.1.4

Pros

Does what it claims.
Works very quickly (MacBook Pro with SSD) - *much* faster than mucking around with actual CDs.
Very simple interface via a new icon in the menu bar.
Free trial works well.
Works fine in OS X Mavericks.

Cons

Virtual discs are limited in size to standard CDs. I would have liked if larger discs (e.g. DVD or bigger) were possible, but this was not critical for me.

Summary

One click on 'New Media' inserts a (virtual) blank CD for burning.
The disc can then be re-ripped before ejecting, if desired.
Ejecting the discs prompts where to save the image.
The disc image can be re-opened later.

"Couldn't get it to work with OSX 10.7.4"

September 04, 2012  |  By delegator

2012-09-04 09:43:43  |  By delegator

 |  Version: Virtual CD-RW 1.1.4

Pros

None so far

Cons

Clicked on New Media and...nothing happened. Unable to create a new disk image. The "Open Existing Media" seemed to work in that it popped up a dialog box, but of course without being able to create new media I couldn't really test existing media...

Summary

Seems like a great idea, and I'm glad it helped for somebody, but version 1.2 did not work for me under OS X 10.7.4

"Does what it says, provides a virtual CD writer"

January 04, 2012  |  By gbwss

2012-01-04 04:08:14  |  By gbwss

 |  Version: Virtual CD-RW 1.1.4

Pros

Very quick on a SSD
It just works

Cons

Have to restart the computer to complete the installation :)

Summary

I used it to burn and re-import some songs from iTunes and it is much quicker than burning them on a real medium.

"Warning...Save your $$$!!!"

March 26, 2011  |  By rws1773

2011-03-26 23:38:23  |  By rws1773

 |  Version: Virtual CD-RW 1.0

Pros

great idea

Cons

doesn't work

Summary

There are only two reasons why I leave reviews: either I love the product and want to preach its virtues or I hate the product and want to warn others.

I can honestly say that this is the first time I have felt ripped off by an OS X developer. In short, this software does not work for long. I downloaded the demo and that proved stable and functional. However, when I purchased the license, the app stopped working after about a week and reverted to the nag of "Buy Now" or "Quit" in the drop down menu. I contacted the developer who advised that I must have downloaded an "old" version (I had previously downloaded directly from their website). Reinstalled the app and that resolved the problem for about two days this time. Several re-installations later and the app just doesn't work. Very disappointing! I've given up and written it off completely.
