A Virtual CD-ROM drive emulates the functionality of the CD-ROM drive on your computer by applying emulation technology. You can use it as if it were a real CD-ROM drive. Tasks performed by a traditional CD-ROM drive can be done utilizing a virtual CD-ROM drive.
In addition, the virtual CD-ROM drive has many user-friendly functions that are not provided by a physical CD-ROM drive. For example:
A real CD is not required to be inserted when running a program, so you can avoid the inconvenience of carrying a lot of CD's with you when you are working.
Compared to a real CD-ROM drive, a virtual CD-ROM drive is 200x faster!
You can use it as a real CD-ROM drive!
