Hello, I recently downloaded an image of memtest 86, and burned the iso to CD, but since then, when looking under 'Computer' I now have a Blue Ray (BD-Rom) drive labeled as drive F:, (no idea where that came from) and in Device Manager under DVD/CD-ROM drives I have a drive listed as VWPUNU VK9Q3CDE38 SCSI CD-ROM Device, (no idea where that came from either) can anyone explain this??
Thanks.

From a 4 year old Yahoo Answer:


What is IVI Virtual SCSI CdRom Device for?

That is "Daemon Tools" virtual device driver, you can mount ISO files and other disk images instead of actually burning them to a disk. Conversely, if you just don't want to use your physical media create an ISO image of it once and mount it on the virtual drive as many times as you like (and keep the real disk safe). I think the systray icon is a red box w/ a silver lightning bolt, you can right-click and access the controls for it.

If you backup DVDs using dvdshrink, and want to save battery life, a good method would be the .ISO image format on your hdd and you won't waste power using the dvd drive to play just mount the ISO with daemon tools.
