25 Spinlde of verbatim dual layer is 498SEk

blu-ray 1x speed = 4.5MB/s
dvd 1x speed = 1.35MB/s

1x blu-ray = about 3.34x DVD

6x blu-ray = about 27MB/s = 20x DVD (fastest DVD read speed is 18x possible on few drives after firmware hack)

blu-ray might top out at 12x, so about 56x dvd speed

right now i have LG 6x blu-ray burner

blu-ray playback is fine, just ripping takes 3 times longer then it should
Get VirtualCD - Das Original

It does not use SPTD.sys, like Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%, but their own (much better and 100% stable) driver. Many games block SPTD.sys, but not VirtualCD.

i'm using virtualCD right now, only problem is that it doesn't have tray icon, need to go to my computer to run it.

i was also considering trying this program

MagicDisc is freeware. It is very helpful utility designed for creating and managing virtual CD drives and CD/DVD discs. For anyone who deals with CD-based programs – it is a MUST. MagicDisc allows you to use almost all CD/DVD image without burning them onto CD or DVD in order to easily access your favorite games, music, or software programs ---- It works like a real CD/DVD-ROM: You can run programs, play games, or listen to music from your virtual CD-ROM. Allowing you to run your game images at over 200x faster than from a conventional CD/DVD-ROM. MagicDisc is a powerful utility that uses a unique combination of options to ensure a perfect back-up every time. Partner with MagicISO, Your original games/program discs can be safely stored away, MagicISO mean that you always have your expensive media stored safely as CD/DVD image file on your hard drive, and use them with MagicDisc just like using the original discs. At the office: Program discs and many other applications generally require the original disc to be in the computer's CD-ROM drive. This restricts the amount of people in your office who can have access to the same software at the same time without the cost of additional discs. MagicDisc virtual drives resolve that problem for you. No more hunting around the offices for that elusive disc you need to run your application, everything you require is just a click away.

All supported CD/DVD image formats

BIN (CDRWin)
IMA/IMG (Generic disk images)
CIF (Easy CD Creator)
NRG (Nero - Burning ROM)
IMG/CCD (CloneCD)
MDF/MDS (Fantom CD)
VCD (Farstone Virtual Drive)
VaporCD (Noum Vapor CDROM)
P01/MD1/XA (Gear)
VC4/000 (Virtual CD)
VDI (Virtuo CD Manager)
C2D (WinOnCD)
BWI/BWT (BlinkWrite)
CDI (DiscJuggler)
TAO/DAO (Duplicator)
PDI (Instant Copy)
MagicDisc has automatically Detecting engine, so user try to open any CD/DVD image files with MagicDisc.

i'm not installing Daemon Tools again until they fix this, don't need a program to screw around with my Blu-ray drive.

I have a retail version, and it does show tray icon by default. Guess trial does not have it?



Anyway, get something that does not use SPTD.sys. That driver is pure evil, and causes many Vista x64 crashes.

There is only one "Das Original" :-) AnyDVD HD from Slysoft is great, but clonedrive is crap.
