Can someone explain the benifits of a virtual drive? I downloaded one from slysoft and finally got rid of it because I saw no use for it… I know I just dont know how to use it or what its for.
The two main reasons for a virtual drive are speed and convenience.
Speed: Once you have ripped an image of your CD to your hard drive and mounted it to a virtual drive, it essentially becomes a 200x CD drive. If you’re playing a game and it has to load a cut scene or something, it will be much faster than reading it from disc.
Convenience: If you have the hard drive space, you can mount several images to multiple virtual drves. That way, you always have your CDs handy, and never have to swap discs.
VERY good answer!!!-
