Virtual CD RW Mac is an easy to use, virtual CD drive for Mac OS X 10.6 or later. It uses a disk image, but appears to your Mac as if you have inserted a CD, so you can read from it and burn to it even if you don’t have a CD drive, but 10 times faster. Use it with music converter software instead of using a physical CD or to make virtual copies of CDs. For example, you can use it to convert an .iso disk image to a bin/cue disk image.

Your Mac may not have a CD drive, which is a problem if you’re trying to use an app that burns to a CD or CD RW. You can’t use a disk image (.dmg) file created by the Mac OS X Disk Utility instead, because a .dmg does not appear to be inserted in a real optical drive to your Mac. You could use an external CD drive, but they are much slower than an internal CD drive. Or, you could use a virtual CD app, like Virtual CD RW Mac. Because Virtual CD RW Mac is a kernel extension (driver), it looks exactly like a physical drive to all applications running on the Mac OS. And because it stores the virtual CD data in a file on your hard disk, it is much faster than any actual CD drive, whether it is an internal CD drive or an external CD drive.
