A ROM image, or simply ROM, is a computer file which contains a read only copy of the data from a CD, DVD, BD, HD, read-only memory chip, or a computer's firmware. The term is frequently used in the context of emulation, whereby a media disk or a computer firmware are copied to ROM. Using software known as an emulator, the ROM can be run on another computer.

Virtual CD creates a virtual DVD-ROM drive locally to extend your computing infrastructure. A Virtual DVD-ROM emulation allows you to use virtual optical drives when and where you need them. You can create an ISO or MDS image from your CD/DVD or Blu-Ray/HD-DVD drive with any disk grabbing utility and save it to your hard drive.

Whenever you need to read data or run applications from that image, just mount it as a virtual DVD-ROM drive in Virtual CD. The image will appear as a new optical drive to your system. It can then be used as if it were a local DVD-ROM drive.
