I'm looking for a program that will allow me to create a virtual cd drive, and allow cd burning programs to write to the virtual drive.

    Hmm....i think it's not possible to write on a virtual cd drive. first of all, burning programs require a media present
    inside the drive before starting to burn the files.

    can i ask you a question, why do you want to burn on a virtual cd drive? without a cd present???

    I've purchased some music through the SonicStage Music Store, but it won't let me export the files as mp3's.  I can only listen to the files that I've paid for and downloaded in the SonicStage media player.  However, it will let me burn the files to a CD.  I want to burn the music to a virtual CD, and then 'rip' the music off of it.  This way, I don't end up wasting an actual CD just to get my music...

    oh i see....

    im also using sonicstage for my MD player.
    sonicstage uses ATRAC codec for their files.
    i really don't know other ways to convert ATRAC files to other formats.

    but....
    you can browse these links to be able to read some opinions / suggestions regarding conversion.
    maybe it will help you.
