Paragon-CDROM-Emulator (XP, WinME, Win98SE)

Simple-to-use piece of software that helps you create an image of the CD or DVD that you want to emulate and edit ISO files, while offering support for multisession data discs
Paragon CD-ROM Emulator Personal Edition    3 SCREENSHOTS Paragon CD-ROM Emulator Personal Edition is a practical application that allows you to create virtual disc drives and attach them to your computer. It is designed for users that want to use CD images for using or installing a certain software package.

If some of your programs or games require access to the installation CD while they are running, this app can help you improve efficiency. As it is faster to access the information from the hard drive than to read it from the CD or DVD, creating and mounting an image is recommended.

Organize virtual images in different folders

This tool is also able to organize the virtual images in different folders in order to quickly find the one that you need. You just need to create a folder structure with the categories and specify the path to the ISO files.
Create an image of the CD or DVD

Before using the virtual disc drive, you need to create an image of the CD or DVD that you want to emulate. The Grab Wizard enables you to create an ISO9660 compatible image of any game or audio disc. It also supports DVDs and multisession data discs.

The image collection can include all the images stored on your hard drive or on removable storage devices. In order to load an image you need to use the Drive Manager and specify the drive letters that can be used for the virtual drives.
Edit ISO file

If you need to make some changes to the disc image you can use the Construct Wizard to edit the ISO file. The wizards included in the application are designed to guide you through all the steps required for a certain modification.
Bottom line

Overall, Paragon CD-ROM Emulator is a useful tool for the users that work with multiple disc images on a daily basis. Unfortunately, it is not actively supported and does not work on the latest operating systems such as Windows 7 or 8.
