Fantom CD is a software for reading CDs and running CD programs without a CD by creating a virtual CD-ROM drive on the hard disk using software methods.
This emulator allows you to run CD-ROM applications from your hard drive or network server. In your hard drive space, you can establish and access up to 31 different virtual CD-ROM drives.
From the moment you use Fantom CD, there is no more need to search CD-ROMs or load CD-ROMs in the drive. There is no need to wait for the CD-ROM drive to run, either. You also do not need to change the CD-ROM to run another application program. You can also use Fantom CD to record the image files to empty CD-R disc. Fantom CD is not only the best CD-ROM emulator but also the best choice for you to use/play/run C/DVD discs and restore them back to CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW.
IDC believes -- on the strength of CD-RW's success -- the CD/DVD-Rec segment will be the leading growth technology between 2001 and 2005. According to IDC, CD/DVD-ROM represents approximately 72% of the market's unit volume and 52% of its value. In the next five years, CD/DVD-ROM volumes will decline dramatically -- showing signs of saturation. As a technology that is quickly becoming a commodity, CD-ROM will remain important in low-cost and dual-drive PCs..."
