Paragon CD-ROM Emulator is very helpful utility designed for creating and managing virtual CD/DVD drives and CD/DVD images.
These virtual drives are much more convenient, reliable and quicker than physical ones. Their speed is even ten times faster than the one while working with the best physical CD/DVD-ROMs. They are silent, consume no power and don't take time for CD swapping and speeding-up.
