How Can VirtualDVD Help You Easily Mount and Access Your DVDs, CDs, and Blu-ray Images?
After a simple installation process of the VirtualDVD application on your Windows computer, you can then add a single virtual disc drive to Explorer. Beginners may find it difficult to use this application on the first try as it does not come with any user instructions. But you can try to follow the process below and see how it works for you.
On its first launch of the application, it may seem like nothing happens at first. However, because the application constantly runs in your system tray, you won't be able to access it through the normal channel. You have to go through a series of right-clicks to navigate through the application.
To get started you can imply Right-click the application's system tray icon and then select Virtual Devices; you can select up to a maximum of 24 drives. Form the setup; you can then choose that drive, click on "Mount Image" and you'll be prompted for your disc image. Once you have mounted your drive or drives, the disc becomes available in Explorer exactly as it would in a physical drive. You can customize the region, drive letter and more just as you would do with the usual Windows tools.
Being that the application integrates so well into Windows, VirtualDVD runs smoothly and very quietly on your hard drive without taking up much memory and CPU space. The program remains really light on computer resources all the time, so you don't experience any slow down on your operating system in any way.
The application is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 7, 8, and 10 32 and 64-bit computers. It is also available for download in a lightweight file size of about 6.88 MB. It is also available in English, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Portugal), Russian, Spanish, and Slovak languages
Though a lightweight and easy to use the application, it doesn't run without a few cons such as the poor job it does of hunting down ISO images, it is something you can navigate through. Another con is that there is almost a total lack of documentation, online support or user instructions, so you will have to keep trying till you get how it works or find another alternative.
