One of the first CD-ROM emulation & burning software.
FarStone VirtualDrive is the original and one of the best CD-ROM emulation & burning software. Import ISO images into your VirtualDrive, and play directly without the need of burning and a DVD drive. It will convert it to a Virtual CD image file (VCD), which you can play in place of the original disc in any one of up to 23 “virtual drives” created by the software.
Virtual discs can be shared over a network or transported on a laptop computer, a USB device, or other external media. They run directly on the hard drive, saving wear and tear on your CD-ROM drive and extending the battery life of laptop computers. VirtualDrive also allows users to use ISO files immediately without needing a DVD drive or burn to DVD discs.
