Learn to Mount ISO Image file as Virtual CD-ROM Drives- Using gBurner Virtual Drive

Today I am gonna tell you about Virtual CD-ROM Drive that you can create to Mount any ISO Image file. An ISO file, often called an ISO image, is a single file, perfect representation of an entire CD, DVD, or BD. The entire contents of a disc can be precisely duplicated in a single ISO file. It’s a software that you have to install and it will show you a CD-ROM Drive in your computer even if you don’t have a physical one and it works perfectly fine just like a Physical DVD/CD drive that you can use to mount Image of a Software and install it.

When you buy any software online sometimes the file is downloaded as an ISO image file which you need to burn on a CD/ DVD before you can run the setup, So in that case you don’t have to burn that image you can just mount it to a virtual CD/DVD-ROM and run the setup to install that software.For anyone who deals with CD-based programs, it allows them to use almost all CD/DVD image without burning them onto CD or DVD in order to easily access your favorite games, music, or software programs.It works like a real CD/DVD-ROM. You can run programs, play games, or listen to music from your virtual CD-ROM. Allowing you to run your game images at over 200x faster than from a conventional CD/DVD-ROM. There are multiple Virtual CD/DVD-ROM drive software available but some of the famous software are MagicDisc, Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel, Nero Image Drive and gBurner Virtual Drive (gBurner Virtual Drive enables you to create up to 16 virtual drives).

Windows 8 users do NOT need this tool. Windows 8 natively supports ISO files. In Windows 8, you can simply open an ISO file and Windows automatically assigns it a drive letter and reads it as a virtual drive.

Here in my Article I am gonna use gBurner Virtual Drive, because that’s the easiest to use and best one with great features that it supports all popular CD/DVD image file formats. Following is a list of all supported CD/DVD image file formats:
