What is CD emulation software?
  

I just love to play games on my personal computer. Somebody have said be to use CD/DVD emulation software for playing games. I have searched on the internet about CD/DVD emulation software, but I am not getting any clear idea about CD/DVD emulation software. Can anybody give a clear idea about CD/DVD emulation software and also suggest some good CD/DVD emulation software for me to use. If it is possible give a detailed description about CD/DVD emulation software.

Re: What is CD emulation software?

CD emulation software is as good as having more than one CD ROM derives. CD/DVD emulation software gives the ability to run CD/DVD image directly form a hard disk making virtual drive. This works same as the CD/DVD from a physical drive after inserting disk on CD/DVD on it. CD/DVD emulation software can be used to make 10 to 20 drives without any cost. It is better to have CD/DVD emulation software because physical drives are limited to one which is bought with the personal computer.

Re: What is CD emulation software?

Normally CD/DVD emulation software is used for mounting images on hard drives, but it can also be used for creating backup on hard drive if CD/DVD is damaged, misplaced or stolen. Making images on hard drives is better rather than having office or work table messed up with piles of CD/DVD. CD/DVD emulation software can used to create image which can be used to make accessible to users on network. CD/DVD emulation software can be used for making encrypted images for security reasons and can also be decrypted when we want to use them.
