Fantom CD is a CD-ROM emulator capable of creating up to thirty different virtual drives. It deals with all the major virtual image formats, such as ISO, CUE, MDS, CCD, CDI and BIN. Secondary features include disc copy, image making, burning and finder.
Emulation of virtual images
The most obvious advantage brought by the application is the fact that it eliminates the need of a physical CD or CD drive.
It perfectly emulates any of the virtual image types mentioned above, allowing you to use the content under several environments such as science simulation platforms or games.
Smooth installation and simple looks
The installation process is easy to follow and ends with the launch of the application. The interface is painted in grey colors and doesn’t make that much of an impression. Compensation comes from its set of features that don’t disappoint when put to test.
Globally, Fantom CD bundles six major modules: an image making wizard (converts CD content to virtual images), a CD / DVD device manager (displays basic information about your CD / DVD drives with Load / Eject options), an Image Finder Wizard (quickly locates virtual images), a Copy Wizard (copies CD content), an Image Burning module (enables you to burn virtual images to CD) and a CD / DVD Erase Wizard (erases / formats discs).
Emulate items protected by SafeDisc, SecuROM and LaserLock
These are accessible from the system tray panel as well. Other emulation options consist of possibilities to enable the emulation of items protected by SafeDisc (Bad Sectors Emulation), SecuROM (Sub-Channel Data Fixed and Emulation) and LaserLock technologies.
Powerful CD emulation app
All in all, Fantom CD performs CD emulation via a strong and speedy engine and is not limited to this feature. The added bonus that comes from other disc utilities can only confirm its value.
