Virtual CD or Virtual DVD are nothing but emulators that let you create virtual CD or DVD drives in your PC i.e. your operating system will treat them as any other real CD or DVD drives.
How does a Virtual CD or Virtual DVD work?
When you have a Virtual CD or Virtual DVD drive on your computer, you can mount an ISO image of the real CD or DVD using this drive, instead of placing a physical CD ROM or DVD into this virtual drive.The Virtual CD or DVD software will allow the system to play the CD or DVD or run programs from it. Thus, Virtual CD or DVD drives are useful only if you have ISO images of the CD or DVD you want to play.
Virtual CD or DVD drives are always faster than the real physical drives, since they reside on the hard disk of your PC. There are a few free Virtual CD or DVD software. One among them is “MagicDisc“.This is designed for creating and managing virtual CD drives and CD or DVD discs.
MagicDisc allows you to use almost all CD or DVD images, without burning them to a CD or DVD. Thus you can easily access your favorite games, music or software programs from your virtual CD-ROM. This free Virtual CD software lets you run your games (in ISO image formats) at over 200x faster than from a conventional CD/DVD-ROM!
With MagicDisc, you can store expensive media safely as CD or DVD image file on your hard drive and use them like using the original discs.The latest version of MagicDisc is optimized for Microsoft Windows 7 and 2008 Server.
