Virtual Clone Drive

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Virtual Clone Drive is a great tool for mounting ISO, BIN or CCD files. Virtual Clone Drive works just like a physical CD/DVD drive, but exists virtually.

Image files can be mounted onto a virtual drive from your hard disk or a network drive and used in the same manner as inserting into a normal CD/DVD drive.

 1) Download Virtual Clone Drive for free by click here

2) Install the software

3) Right click on your ISO and select to use Virtual Clone Drive

4) This will create a new mapped drive and within you will see your extracted ISO

5) Carry out the install as you would do if you were to insert a physical CD into your machine.

The software supports upto 8 virtual drives running at the same time.

There is other software out there but Virtual Clone Drive is one of my favourites.
