Hey there boytaboy, welcome to Geeks To Go Forums.

What program are you using????

Here is a great and very reliable cloning program.

http://www.alcohol-software.com/ (Alcohol 120%)
Theres also CloneCD

But if you want to use your program I will assist you on how to make a virtual drive.

Cool :whistling:

try alcohol or clone cd (both of those actually have their own virtual cd utilities as well) or any other program that allows you to make an .ISO image of a cd (i use cdburnerxp pro for making my iso's...but most cd burning software has the ability to m ake an iso image of a cd)

Take note of XP in xpvirtualcd.html. You are using windows 2000. I dont know if you are allowed to carry on but. If it is alright with the mod's I will glady help you out. All I can tell you now is that that program wont work

Thanks dsenette, ok boytaboy start by downloading and installing one of the following programs:

http://www.slysoft.com/en/clonecd.html (Trial)
or
http://www.alcohol-software.com/ (Recommended)

These are both trials, but see if you like them and if they are worth buying. I will look for some free ones now now.

When you have downloaded them try seeing if you can manage to make a clone of the cd by yourself. If not let me know

daemon tools will allow you to mount the image once its copied, but to my knowledge, it does not contain utilities to make the iso copies. daemon tools is free, but alcohol 120% is easily the best software for both copying and mounting.
