Sometime we might want to burn some CD or DVD disk ,but we dont have any bank CD or DVD left we might have some CD/DVD disk music,games ,software and etc. which is we want to save to HDD. for later use.
Firstly, we have to learn that directly copy files of them to HDD. might have some problem like cannot open due to "copy only name of them " or create short cut only
What I want to tell is that all of them is differnt from normal file like a file of MS office like Word,Excel ,PPT, or PDF for instances
so ,how to do ?
we need some software to help our job done and they are called "Virtual drive or Virtual disk"
Like freetool name DAEMON Tools Lite could be the best free tool for anyone who is looking for helping tool easy ,but effectively to create virtual drives on your computer (Virtual Drive).The reason is we no need to insert our CD/DVD disk into the CD/DVD reader drive ,but will read from our Image File from the HDD.
Normally ,The common paid software like "Nero" has ability to do this job as well ,however for the trial version or come with addition gift of buying hardware like CD/DVD drive wont have ability to do so.
Dont get confuse ,but let go a step by step.
First ,we would have used "Nero" to burn Image file and save on HDD. in any folder and disk drive
2nd we use DAEMON Tools Lite to mount Image file
scenario: I have bought a copy right typing tutor CD disk which need to read from CD drive every time to use it.By this way I feel like too complicate and may cause CD drive reader out of order faster from too much working.
