a program I am using tracks down my diskdrives and offers to write a dvd image to them. I would like to be able to write this image on HD in stead of on disk, but I have no option to browse the file system.

Therefore I would like a virtual dvd disk, that is in fact a folder, but that is recognized by the app. as a real, empty dvd.

I have tried MagicDisk, but it doesn't seem to offer the ability to couple an emulated disk drive to a folder...

So what you want is program the converts a filesystem to a virtual DVD and then a second program to convert the DVD back to a filesystem? – Michaelkay Apr 1 '10 at 20:16
basically... : yes, I'm kind of hopeless, SUPER got stuck on the native format of the program (that records television) so I figured I tried out the build in conversion (to dvd). – Peter Apr 1 '10 at 20:24

I have successfully used Virtual CD (which now supports DVD, BluRay etc) to make a virtual CD burner. You can then convert the resulting image file into an ISO and extract the files from it if you want.

Total Mounter is free as opposed to Virtual CD that offers a 30 day trial and pay softare.

There is a "pro" and a free version without the "pro" title. You can download the free version of Total Mounter. Make sure to run the setup as Administrator.
