    Multi-CD encyclopedia (XP Pro SP2)

    I have a pre-XP encyclopedia that uses 8 CDs, and that asks for a CD when it wants to access the material on it. It works perfectly well, but I have ample space on the drive and I think I once read that you can set such programs up to run under XP without having to feed them CDs on command.

    If anyone knows how to accomplish this I would be extremely interested to learn how to do it. (The reference source is out of print, otherwise I'd simply buy a new one.)

    Perhaps a Virtual CD Drive is what you are looking for.

    I am a happy user of Virtual CD (which is a different product with a similar name).
