Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Options are few, but this disk-imaging utility effectively creates virtual copies of CDs. Putting it mildly, Circle Virtual CD's interface is dismal. The program first requires a source disk in the CD-ROM drive to transfer to the hard drive. From there, we were able to select the drive letter, and the program created a copy of the CD on our PC as its own virtual CD drive. You can run the copied program from the virtual drive as if a disk were loaded. During tests, the desktop shortcut created to run our virtual CD didn't work, although its folder icon launched just fine. A right click of the application's tray icon gave easy access to its interface and other options, such as ejecting the CD drive door. Although it doesn't offer any file-management features for organizing, copying, or deleting its creations, we are pleased with the results. Any user wanting to end the rotational CD game will find this free program quite beneficial.
