    First of all win Xp has a free tool for CD emulation (i got it with AutopatcherXP...very clumsy interface...emulates only ISOs...not support to build ISO ...Ok ISORecorder is there but most CDs especially multi-session and multi-track are not copied properly)

    Next You can use CloneCD ( Pl note versions above 4.2.2.2 does not support virtual drive) creates and emulates cds in .ccd format only...
    Stable..light interface...though one drive only..

    What i used for better part of my life is VirtualCd.. cool interface...nice copying mechanism...though no support for creating ISOs

    off to "never ever" land
    wayyy too many suggestions here :D
    well lets try and sum it up ..
    u can use nero/alcohol 120%/blindwrite etc to make a cd image ( ISO mostly)
    then u can emulate using nero virtual drive/daemon tools (my fav.)/virtual cd emulator

    try 'virtual cd'. It lets u create a virtual drive which can emulate cd-rom drives.

    Even Alcohol can make images .iso's that is and then emulate a virtual drive too. Iso is more or less the standard format, so u can mount the images straightaway like the medikit iso etc. No hassles of conversion to another format. Another advantage i found was that Alcohol was very good at bad sector reading or reading cd's that were scratched while Vcd took a lot of time.

    Nero 6, I guess is easier.

    Choose the ImageRecorder as your default writer.
    Save the image of your gamecd in your hard disk.

    Now choose NeroImageDrive from ProgramFile -> Menu.
    Enable ImageDrive and mount the image that you created as the First Drive.

    Finished.

    U could easily load and unload images the same way for an image drive.
