CDSpace

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

For some computer owners, the need to use CDs and DVDs in the age of downloadable software is an annoyance bordering on insult. CDSpace is one of many programs that allows virtual copies of CDs and DVDs (although not copy-protected movie DVDs) to be transferred to a hard drive, and used there just as though the disc was still in the drive. However, we found it considerably less flexible than other rival disc-emulation programs. It creates disc "images" in its own format, LCD, and reads another popular format called ISO, but does not recognize other common formats such as Nero (NRG) or Easy CD Creator (CIF). The software provides few options for managing or organizing disc images once they have been created, offering only the ability to scan hard disks for image files. Overall, CDSpace trails rival applications on several fronts, and users can easily get the same functionality from other freeware applications.
