Editing a Virtual CD

[Top]  [Previous]  [Next]

You can use the Virtual CD Editor to modify existing virtual CDs. To open a virtual CD for editing, begin by selecting it in the CD Control Center. Then right-click on it to open a popup menu and select Edit. The Editor program opens and loads the selected virtual CD.



Only virtual data CDs can be edited; it is not possible to edit ISO images. If the selected CD is of a type that cannot be edited, the "Edit" menu item is not available.



If the virtual CD you load for editing already has multiple sessions, you need to select the session you wish to edit. The most recent session shows the current status of the CD content.


You can now modify the content of this virtual CD. For example, you can remove files that you don't need, such as demo software, or adapt the autorun function to your preferences. To save your changes, select Create virtual CD on the Editor tab of the Ribbon.



When you load a virtual CD for editing, it can be saved only as a virtual CD. The options for writing the data to an ISO image or on CD are not available.


When you select the "Create" command, your changes are simply written in a new session. This is why the process usually does not take very long. The virtual CD is now a multi-session CD.



Rather than using the Image Wizard to create a 1-to-1 image of a CD, you can use the Editor to customize, rather than copy, the data.



Do not edit virtual CDs that are made with non-standard formatting (such as games CDs). If you do, the virtual CD will no longer run properly.
