Virtual CD 10.5.0.2
Put an end to the business of looking for and inserting your CDs/DVDs.
With Virtual CD you can create compressed 1:1 copies (virtual CDs/DVDs) to your hard drive. You can then store your originals safely in a cabinet. Your virtual CDs are then available with a simple click or even automatically with the autostart of the corresponding program.
No more drive noise, no more changing CDs, no more slow CD start-up.
With Virtual CD you receive up to virtual drives that behave just like the "real" physical CD/DVD drives * except that they are up to 200x faster! The only noise you hear is music or the applictions sounds, and all you need to do is play, work and enjoy.
Fast, convenient, effective.
Nobody needs to handle fragile CDs any more in order to run applications. Your children don't need to, nor do your colleagues or you yourself. Music, games, searching programs, grafic programs * all will be loaded faster and is immediately accessible. You can simultaneously use a number of different CD programs without needing to purchase a number of CDdrives * this pays off quickly.

Customizable double-click With Virtual CD 10, you can define which action is triggered by a double-click on an image, a drive or a desktop icon. You can even define different actions dependent on the program window in which the element is double-clicked (Windows Explorer or CD Control Center).
Direct drive access through desktop icons Virtual CD displays the PC's drives as desktop icons, allowing fast access. You can define whether drives are shown only when they contain media or empty drives are displayed as well. This function can also be activated for physical drives, including hard disks and removable media (such as flash drives).
"Data safe" mode With the new data safe mode, encrypted drives can be created automatically. This makes it easy to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access. Encrypted drives do not differ from ordinary drives in operation or handling.
Sound file mode Virtual CD 10 enables fast conversion of any audio file type into the flexible and widely used MP3 and OGG Vorbis formats. The user can determine the desired quality for all formats.
Direct burning functions The revised Editor in Version 10 has a media-burning function that lets you burn your choice of data directly onto a CD, DVD or Blu-ray Disc. Thus one slender burning program serves all your needs.
Expanded ISO support Virtual CD 10 lets you store descriptions, comments and passwords with your ISO files. This means you have practically the same level of convenience with standardized ISO files that you have with genuine Virtual CD images.
Flexible allocation of images to drives Starting now, images can also be "inserted" in any physical drive – for example, you can even use the drive letter of a hard drive
Integrating external programs You can now integrate external programs in the Virtual CD interface, both in the Quick Launch menu and in CD Management. You can also pass arguments on the command line when a program is called, for easy automation of tasks.
Extended API The Virtual CD API for professional and semi-professional use has once again been expanded and improved. Now it is even easier to use external programs to control and operate Virtual CD.
