    Dear all,

    DVDFab Virtual Drive is a virtual DVD/Blu-ray emulator. It emulates maximum 18 drives and works with DVD/Blu-ray images created by DVDFab and other programs.

    For example, to play a Blu-ray backup on PC with PowerDVD 8 and above, you need use DVDFab to backup the Blu-ray to an ISO image file, and use DVDFab Virtual Drive to mount it, then PowerDVD will play it.

    DVDFab Virtual Drive is freeware, no cost at all.

    System Requirements
    * Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 (32-bit/64-bit) X86/X64/IA64
    * Pentium II 500 MHz, 256 MB of RAM

    Download Link
    http://72.55.191.8/download/DVDFabVirtualDrive1000.exe

    Best Regards,
    Fengtao

      VERY KEWL .......

      THX Feng ... I will install and start using .... hopefully much better than all the alternatives I been using.

      Hopefully it installs some shortcuts in the right-click context menu for quick mounting ...


      EDIT: Yep .... Looks real GOOD, context mounting is a breeze, unmounting via tray icon very simple. Tried both movie ISO and Application ISO, both mounted and worked perfectly !! Plus the vdrive.exe is half the size of the DTLite.exe memory usage in Task Manager.

      THX, I will now remove DAEMON and use DVDFVD (DVDFab Virtual Drive) from this point on !!

          Looks good so far, but in About window the other products are not displayed in localized language.

          Also what is the different between "Clear" and "Purge" history? Purge doesn't do anything strangely.

          In "Change Drive letter" window "Drive Letter" is not displayed completely in German.
          In "Mount Image" window you should automatically stretch column name, so it gets displayed fully.

              Installed and works flawlessly on 32-bit XP SP3 system. Even works with old (WinDVD5) player software that uses ASPI. WinDVD9 also recognized the virtual drive and loaded and played the ISO with no intervention, but PowerDVD did not (but did play manually from the virtual drive).

              The install hung after clicking Finish on Win7Pro 64-bit and required a restart to get rid of the "I'm Busy" cursor, but it may have been a related problem I have been having with Kaspersky 2010 on the Win7 machine.

              It has a very small footprint and low resource use. A handy addition under the DVDFab umbrella, thanks Fengtao.

                I just did some testing also and it works perfectly for me on XP and Vista Ultimate.

                Thanks Fab Team....

                Now I think we need to put together a guide of "How to play from your hard disk" (both BR & DVD) as this topic has been by far the most prolific question in the forum over the last couple of weeks and this utility will certainly help.

                  There will be a new page in the Tutorial for Virtual Player with a short version posted in here in the forum (but it will not deal with specific player software beyond the basics).

                    Had a problem and need someone else to test my workflow .... will need PoerDVD 9 user, but maybe another softplay might do the same .... haven't had to time to test that.

                    I do my ISO's all at once so I might have 4-6 isos to burn, i.e. queue feature in ImgBurn

                    So before burning I run through all the ISO's via mounting the first, then open softplayer (PowerDVD9), select the mounted drive, play. Now while that ISO is playing I go to a Explorer Window re-mount a different ISO via the context menu. I will do each iso via context menu and so on ..... till I viewed all 5-6 isos. I have used this method with DAEMON for many years using PDVD9 (PowerDVD5), ver 9 in a pretty new install, 2-3 mos.

                    Well DVDFab VD hangs PDVD9 ..... I usta do this all the time with DAEMON Lite and the CloneDVD VD no problem (really did not like CDVDVD functionality at ALL). Been using this method for years with tools mentioned no issues.

                    Plus, I really like the functionality of DVDFVD, definitely plus is the way the context menu works over the other VD tools.

                    FYI: I recently update to PowerDVD9 but have run at least 20-30 iso's through ver 9, next batch I will try my old version 5. Definitely never had a problem with PDVD5 for years.

                    EDIT: I went back and reinstalled DAEMON Lite 4.35 .... cycled through the 6 isos TWICE, no hang-up while viewing them with PDVD9. Mounted the same isos with DVDFVD WITHOUT playing them in PDVD9, just cycled through them. But once I selected one to play, then tried to select another via the context menu PDVD9 hung .. Seems like DVDFVD is NOT doing an EJECT first, best guess ?


                    Well I hope that's as clear as mud !!!

                      Also I noticed that DVDFVD will not accept the .mds file via the context menu. Not as important as the above mentioned.

                      I need to run to the store, when I get back I will snag (Snag-It) some images and show you what it's doing. I would have posted them already but I removed my VERY OLD version of Snag-It so that I can install the newest/latest/greatest version.

                      Ciao ... be back shortly !

                          If not mistaken there are lot of program which can play from harddrive. But not all are worth a try.

                          I prefer TMT3

                            First version of the Swedish translation.

                            I do have the same question about Purge and Clear as the German translator.

                              I am guessing here, but perhaps the Purge deletes history for images that are now unmounted, Clear deletes all history? I have asked for clarification.
