Virtual Drive enhancment



  • Would it be difficult to add the Feature to virtual drive to insert ISO image into Physical CD/DVD ROM

    instead of having it mount a virtual drive it could just insert into a drive that’s already present

    I’ve seen this done with other apps and I just thought it woulds be nice for that option to be added to PA context menu

    It could be a feature only available to the paying customers



  • I’m not sure what you mean - do you mean to “burn” the iso onto a disc?



  • No PA already can do burning

    Ok lets say you have 2 optical drives Drive Drive D and Drive E for example

    and you click on an iso image sitting on your desktop and along with PA’s option to mount as virtual drive which it already has

    How about an option to insert/mount that image into a drive that’s Already there Drive D or Drive E for instance

    @PowerAngel:

    If I understand you correct, you have 2 optical physical drives (CD/DVD units) as drive D and E and you would like to mount an ISO-image to one of these drives?

    Well ISO-files can be used two ways. Eiher you burn the ISO file to a Disc (CD or DVD) and then use the disc in the physical drive, or you mount the ISO file into a virtual drive instead and it will act as if it is a physical drive with a disc inserted.

    I don’t know if its even possible to mount a ISO-file to a physical drive since a physical drive looks for a disc insered into it.

    Besides all that, what’s the point of getting this feature if it’s possible?

    i guess the point is novelty of it 😉



  • Yes it is possible I currently do it with http://www.virtualcd-online.com/

    cause some pieces of software only recognize things in Physical drives

    So I keep that piece of software around when necessary & I don’t feel like burning the iso

    And If PA were to implement this addition I wouldn’t need that other piece of software

    No Big deal either either way just a suggestion

    Thanks for the information, I didn’t know it was possible. The program looks very interesting if you need more than 4 virtual drives. Maybe I take a closer look at it some day in the future.

    Your welcome and I didn’t know it was possible either till I found the program Personally I don’t really care much about it displaying Virtual drives I would have it not display a if possible but display of one is required

    I mainly just use it to insert images into physical drives and it would be awesome if PA offered similar
