Original & Popular Virtual CD Software, Since 1995

  • Use CD/DVD without the need of DVD drive

The Original & Most Reliable Virtual CD/DVD Software

First released in 1995, FarStone VirtualDrive is the original & the best virtual CD solution. Just insert a CD/DVD into your physical drive, VirtualDrive will convert it to a Virtual CD image file (VCD), which you can play in place of the original disc in any one of up to 23 "virtual drives" created by the software.

Virtual discs can be shared over a network or transported on a laptop computer, a USB device, or other external media. They run directly on the hard drive, saving wear and tear on your CD-ROM drive and extending the battery life of laptop computers. VirtualDrive also allows users to use ISO files immediately without needing a DVD drive or burn to DVD discs.

Thanks to Farstone for the great software...

"I have used Virtual Drive since the early versions many years ago. This program just keeps getting better and more stable. I wouldn't leave home without it. You never know when you will need to insert that program disk to get something you need. With Virtual Drive, I always have ALL my software available to me. Robb"

Virtualdrive Pro gets the job done! All my ancient software works with it

I had virtual drive by farstone since 10 years ago on XP. I moved up to windows 7 and 8. My big worry was can this take the old virtual drives and install on new window os?

I was very happy to see them work! Customer service is very good. They have a live person to answer questions which is rare these days.

I did try out other virtual drives like MagicISO trial version which did not all allow all my software to made into virtual drive. Alcohol lite had some serious adware. My antivirus found it at installation. It removed the threats but showed up again so I uninstalled. Many review found MagicISO and Alcohol to be great. My recommendation is to download VirtualDrive Pro trial and give it a test drive. - petereview

It is absolutely the greatest. I love it!

“Since I installed VirtualDrive, I haven’t had to worry about the grandkids closing the CD drive on a misaligned CD. I don’t have to worry about them scratching the real CD. They just click on the ‘VirtualDrive Manager’ and click on the game they want to play, then click on ‘Insert’ and they are playing their game. It is absolutely the greatest. I love it!” — Barbara, Homer, MI

VirtualDrive is an outstanding product.

“VirtualDrive is an outstanding product. Our computer lab receives a lot use from elementary to high school aged students. We set up a VirtualDrive server in a peer-to-peer configuration. Students access the various types of English, Science, Social Science, Vocational, Music, Math and Reference software from the VirtualDrive server. VirtualDrive allows us to run a wide variety of software, with no risk of losing or damaging valuable software media.” — The Children’s Home of Stockton, Stockton, CA
