In addition to its numerous enhancements, the most striking feature of the latest Virtual CD release is the completely revised user interface.
Operation of Virtual CD is easier and more intuitive than ever. For first-time users, the new interface offers simple and direct access to all essential functions. For more ambitious users or IT professionals, Virtual CD 10 includes an array of versatile tools for handling numerous media and users.
Virtual CD is compatible with all current Windows operating systems for maximum stability and performance.
Virtual CD 10 goes beyond the classic CD and DVD formats and allows virtualization and virtual burning of Blu-ray and HD DVD media as well.
Revised readout algorithms ensure fast and reliable image creation with targeted support for the unique properties of special formats.
With Virtual CD 10, you can define which action is triggered by a double-click on an image, a drive or a desktop icon. You can even define different actions dependent on the program window in which the element is double-clicked (Windows Explorer or CD Control Center).
Virtual CD displays the PC's drives as desktop icons, allowing fast access. You can define whether drives are shown only when they contain media or empty drives are displayed as well. This function can also be activated for physical drives, including hard disks and removable media (such as flash drives).
With the new data safe mode, encrypted drives can be created automatically. This makes it easy to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access. Encrypted drives do not differ from ordinary drives in operation or handling.
Virtual CD 10 enables fast conversion of any audio file type into the flexible and widely used MP3 and OGG Vorbis formats. The user can determine the desired quality for all formats.
The revised Editor in Version 10 has a media-burning function that lets you burn your choice of data directly onto a CD, DVD or Blu-ray Disc. Thus one slender burning program serves all your needs.
Virtual CD 10 lets you store descriptions, comments and passwords with your ISO files. This means you have practically the same level of convenience with standardized ISO files that you have with genuine Virtual CD images.
Starting now, images can also be "inserted" in any physical drive – for example, you can even use the drive letter of a hard drive
You can now integrate external programs in the Virtual CD interface, both in the Quick Launch menu and in CD Management. You can also pass arguments on the command line when a program is called, for easy automation of tasks.
The Virtual CD API for professional and semi-professional use has once again been expanded and improved. Now it is even easier to use external programs to control and operate Virtual CD.
