MagicDisc Virtual DVD / CD-ROM
The use of virtual CD/DVD drives is more comfortable than the classic CD-ROM approach, because it simply offers users more flexibility. Virtual images can be accessed and managed via a wide range of emulators that allow you to mount them as if you inserted a CD/DVD disc in your CD/DVD-ROM.
One of the most popular software applications that deals with virtual images is Daemon Tools, quickly followed by MagicDisc Virtual DVD / CD-ROM. The latter comes at no cost and provides the means to emulate and create virtual CD/DVDs that may contain games, movies, audio or software.
The installation process is not rocket science, so beginners need not worry. Deployment ends with an icon placed in the system tray, from where users can access all of the functions that the software utility brings to the table.
Supported virtual images
The list of supported virtual images includes the following: BIN, CIF, NRG, IMG/CCD, MDF/MDS, VCD, VDI, C2D, CDI, TAO/DAO to name the most important ones. Usage comes down to a simple routine: first, set the number of virtual drives that you need (the upper limit is 15) and then start mounting the images one by one.
Create encrypted ISO images
If you choose to make an ISO image, you can also equip it with a password for safe-keeping. In addition, you can compress ISO files to UIF images, and the other way around. The Options sub-menu allows you to enable or disable auto mount and auto verify.
