Default How to use a virtual Drive..Dont waste Cd's

Ok, Well "Bahawolf" made a thread on if you have a iso file ony uor computer and if you want to burn it he showed you how. Well this guide will show you that if you have an iso file on your computer that you can still use it/ play/ view it, or watver the hell you want without actually burning it. A guru with 7000+ posts didnt know what a virtual drive was so I thought I should made a quick guide..


First you have to download it from..http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/down...tegory&catid=5

Ok first step. Open the program it wil then show up in the right hand corner. You then right click on the symbol.



Next you go to Virtual Dirve options, and the hit set number of drives and click one or how ever many you need...

also, if u decide to use daemon tools as the virtual drive (there are others, but I see no point in trying them, daemon tools is just so exellent) u might also want to download the awxDTools from here http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/down...tegory&catid=2

the description says what it does, and I think that it's great. Just makes using daemon tools even faster and easier.

Nice work! I like the fact that you post screenshots of the setup, it seems to make the process a lot simpler.
