Running CD program from Hard Drive

By S_Allan65 ·
If I copy a CD porgram to my hard drive how can I adjust my settings to run it from a folder on the hard drive rather than original disc?
Cheers

In many cases your going to need a software utility that creates a virtual cd drive on the hard disk so that CD program thinks it is in a CD drive.

Here are a few names of such utilities

These are from www.voodoofiles.com and these and otherscan be found on most any shareware/freeware repository like, cnet downloads, bluechilies, etc.

Virtual Drive 2000

CDSpace 4.1

Fantom CD 1.1.9 Build 1321

Original CD Emulator

Virtual CD - CD/DVD Drive Emulator 4.3

Your going to wantto make sure the product you pick is cleary stated to match your OS. Also the better ones make a point of the feature of handling copy protection schemes incorporated into many CDs.

Hope that helps.

If you copy a cd onto a drive, all you need to do is install the program from the drive.

Thus, uninstall the program, copy the cd, and the install the program from the hdd and no the cd.

This works fine for those programs that are not copyprotected.
