A virtual CD/DVD Drive
is an optical drive that actually resides on your hard drive. The reasons are many: easier installing, always have a back-up of the CDs, don't need original CDs for an application, ect...
Just as above implies, it will eat up your HD space. The good thing is, there are a few shareware applications out there. I have (or is it still use
) Alcohol 120%. One of the features is a virtual drive. Even after the expiration, the drive still shows up in "My Computer", and even in hardware reports.Alcohol 120% v18.104.22.1685
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
