PARAGON CD-ROM Emulator is very helpful utility designed for creating and managing virtual CD drives and CD/DVD discs, These virtual CD drives are much more quick, reliable and convenient than physical ones. They work with hard disk performance, which is ten times faster than the best physical CD drives. They are silent, consume no power, don't take time for CD swapping and speeding-up.
Virtual CDs are just files on your hard disk - no possibility to loose, no dust, no scratches or rifts, no need to search for necessary CD title. CD-ROM Emulator can create up to 23 virtual CD-drives. Due to original emulation technology virtual devices are treated by every application and even operating system as usual physical CD-drive. With so many virtual CD-drives you can simultaneously work with several CD-based applications (e.g. encyclopedia, maps, games, dictionaries, translators etc.) and even listen to favorite music.

Creates lightening fast virtual CD-ROM drives in memory. 20 or more such virtual CD-ROM drives may be dynamically added and removed without rebooting.
High speed hard disk access to your CD images, several times faster than the fastest physical CD-ROM drive available.

Besides the dialog mode there is a command line mode available. This gives system administrators and experienced users the option to work with scripts.
