FarStone Releases VirtualDrive 12 CD-DVD Emulators for Windows 7

August 10, 2009

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ — FarStone Technology has released a new version of its popular CD-DVD emulation software, VirtualDrive and VirtualDrive Pro Version 12 for Windows 7. FarStone VirtualDrive 12 allows you to run CD-DVDs on Windows 7 without the disc, with full ISO support, including customizable features like hot keys, virtual CD cabinets, and enhanced virtual CD building. VirtualDrive is available in five different languages English, French, German, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. VirtualDrive is the utility software you will need on your new Window 7 platform.

“Version 12 emulators were developed to support Windows 7,” said Thomas Lin, FarStone CEO. “Our customers told us they wanted more control over the process of creating, playing, and organizing virtual CDs, and VirtualDrive 12 gives them exactly that.”

VirtualDrive’s VCD Manager plays ISO files directly without requiring conversion to the FarStone VCD format. An ISO file is a standardized disc image used by a variety of emulation software. Users can archive their virtual CDs in custom cabinets, which functions like folders and sub-folders in Windows 7. Manage VCD collections simply by clicking and dragging.

VirtualDrive 12

VirtualDrive 12 CD emulator copies a CD or unencrypted DVD as a compressed image, or “virtual disc,” which can be played in place of the original disc in a “virtual drive” that the software creates. Virtual discs run directly on the hard drive with access speeds nearly 200 times faster than CD-ROMs, accelerating the performance of PC games, photo CDs, and disc-based applications.

VirtualDrive Pro 12

VirtualDrive Pro 12 includes a copy of Virtual Hard Drive Pro, which takes a portion of system memory (RAM) and creates a RAM disk. A RAM disk functions like a hard drive, only with dramatically reduced read and write times, allowing applications to perform up to 340 times faster.
