Using Virtual Drive

Tired of looking for your favorite disc whenever you want to play it? Time to set up virtual drives!

Virtual Drive is a a bonus software that comes with DVD Copy 6 that lets you emulate and run CDs and DVDs without the physical CD or DVD drive. You also do not need the actual CD or DVD media. It allows you to run disc images of frequently used CDs or DVDs so you won't have to load these discs from time to time.

Step 1: Create virtual drives

1. Run Virtual Drive.

2. Click the Set Virtual Drives button and click number of virtual drives you want. You can create up to 22 virtual drives. Let us create 3 virtual drives for now.

Note: Selecting Disable remove all the drives. If you do this, you will need to restart your computer.

The virtual drives are displayed on the Virtual Drives panel.




Step 2: Add disc images

1. Click the Add Image button.

2. Select the image files you want to load in the Open dialog box. Press [Ctrl] or [Shift] to select multiple files. Click Open. The images are added to the Images panel.

Note: Virtual Drive supports.IXA, .IXB, .ISO, .CDI, .NRG, .MDS, .CCD, or .CUE disc image files. You can create your disc image file by using Disc Tool in Virtual Drive.

Step 3: Mount your image files

Click the Mounted Drive column of the image you want to mount and select the virtual drive. For this example, let’s assign DiscImageFile 1, 2, and 3 to Virtual Drives F, G, and H.


Note: If you mount an image to a drive that already has another image mounted, a confirmation dialog appears. Click Yes to mount the image file you have just selected; click No to leave the previous image mounted.

The images are mounted to the selected virtual drives. To test, run your virtual drives using any CD or DVD player.
