This powerful utility provides almost everything you need to turn real CDs and DVDs into virtual ones. The virtual discs reside on your hard drive, thereby speeding up disk access and allowing you to put the real disc away. The program works with ISO images as well as ones created in Nero, CloneCD, and other popular utilities. Creating a virtual disc took about five minutes. Virtual CD offers several features similar apps don t. For example, you can burn your virtual discs on a DVD to run on any PC. Automation tools let you install the program on several computers or insert multiple virtual CDs with a click. The main interface is a bit complicated, but a handy toolbar provides access to essential functions. Even with 20 virtual CD-ROMs plugged in, the program consumed moderate resources. Altogether, Virtual CD makes a superb choice for those who need to work with virtual discs.

Developer's Description

Create virtual drives that contain the information on your CDs.
Virtual CD creates images of your optical media (CD, DVD, HD-DVD, Blu Ray), so you can use them at any time without having the physical medium on hand. Your data is available exactly as if the medium was in the drive, without the disadvantages attendant, for example, on network shares. The images created can be stored on a server to enable simultaneous access by multiple users. When creating an image, you have the option of selecting the level of compression and, if desired, even encryption. You get maximum availability of your data, while lost, damaged and stolen media become a thing of the past. Virtual CD 10 goes beyond the classic CD and DVD formats and allows virtualization and virtual burning of Blu-ray and HD DVD media as well. With the new data safe mode, encrypted drives can be created automatically. This makes it easy to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access. Encrypted drives do not differ from ordinary drives in operation or handling.
