MagicDisc (normally along with Magic ISO) creates and manages virtual CD and DVD discs and drives for operating as CD and DVD image discs nad not needing to burn a phisical support as a solid disc.
An included automatic format detection engine finds the true disc files format before they are copied to a virtual drive.

The virtual CD or DVD created acts exactly as a true drive, running programs and games in real time (much faster than true units) and, in addition, the true discs can be stored in a safe place, away from scratching or any other accident.

Many professional applications require the original disc to be inserted in the CD/DVD drive for correct operation. With a disc image at a virtual drive, applications work faster and the original support stays in a secure place. In addition, the same disc can be copied and used in virtual drive units so it can be used by several users at same time, and the original disc is kept safe for back up or reloading purposes.

It creates Video CD image as BIN/CUE image file. It supports also VCD 1.1, VCD 2.0, SVCD discs creation.

It supports almost every CD and DVD format:

Nero Burning ROM (NRG)
Easy CD Creator (CIF)
CDRWin (BIN)
Virtual CD (VC4/000)
CloneCD (IMG/CCD)
Duplicator (TAO/DAO)
Farstone Virtual Drive (VCD)
Generic disk images (IMA/IMG)
Instant Copy (PDI)
Fantom CD (MDF/MDS)
WinOnCD (C2D)
Noum Vapor CDROM (VaporCD)
Gear (P01/MD1/XA)
Virtuo CD Manager (VDI)
BlinkWrite (BWI/BWT)
DiscJuggler (CDI )

Working along with MagicISO, it creates and open ISO files, extract ISO files, edit ISO files, save these files to CD/DVD, creates bootable ISO file, etc.

It burns standard ISO files and folders to CD-R,CD-RW,DVD-R,DVD-RW,DVD+R,DVD+RW, etc.

It can convert BIN to ISO, ISO to BIN, any CD/DVD image files, such as NRG,BWI,IMG,MDF, etc. to ISO.

Manage floppy disc images: FLP, DSK, BFI, BWI, etc.

It operates with FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32 disc file system and all recent Windows versions.

The easy to use interface appears like a Windows XP style, small and large icons, list, details, Windows Explorer style for folders and views, etc.

  • It works without showing any window. It keeps an icon on the system tray and, from there, you decide how many virtual drives you need and they appear at the same tray, ready to opperate

Cons
