Ever thought about mounting a disk image.?

If NO? then > This article must be useful

 

We have a technology here-by that holds on to deliver you an image (clones in the form of a file) of an actual disk like : CD / DVD / Blue-Ray.

Gotcha?

If NO? then> then keep reading....

there are some software out there that do not work without the CD/ DVD (the hard-media)

So we have this software called as the image creator (The article follows in the pro segment of this desktop category ), mostly it comes bundled within a cd burning / image editing software like Nero, Power ISO, UltraISO and other similar software , which is used to create an image of the disk

An image file can be in one of the following formats:

.iso (standard format), .nrg (Ahead Nero file format),  .mds, .ccd, .isz, .cdi

NOTE: an image is a exact duplicate copy of the exact original media. It contains an exact track-by-track / sector-by-sector replica of the original content media.

Now first of all we should have this image file

Then, that image file is mounted onto a virtual drive to facilitate the serving of the software that depends on that disk, be it a game or other installation media

 

Some good Virtual disk drive creator/ loader software are as follows:
