A software that lets a DVD jukebox behave exactly like one harddisk

Hi,

does anyone has any idea of a software that lets a DVE jukebox behave exactly like one harddisk?
I need it for some archiving purpose...

Thanks!

How do you see the jukebox when connected to the computer? Or you don't have one and want to buy? Usualy, with the software provided by the vendor, a jukebox is seen like a single cd/dvd.

I don't have a jukebox actually, but I have a lot of files that I want to store on DVD, but the application doing the storage (under a certain file structure) do not have the option to write into DVD, therefore I thought of having a program that will allow the jukebox to behave like a harddisk to the application

As I wrote, a jukebox of cd's is seen by the system like a single cd and I think for dvd's is the same. If you want a read/write jukebox for dvd's, I guess the price will have 5 or more digits.

so there is nothing that can make this DVD jukebox looks like a harddisk to a system? Looking like a single CD or DVD is not helpful to my cause.
What I was thinking about is this application of mine writes to a "harddisk". When this "harddisk" receive a notice to write, it will write into the DVD.

Probably there are some specialized hardware that can do this operation, with dvd's in packet write mode. But the speed will be very low, compared to harddisks, and I think the price will be very high.
A normal jukebox is readonly, not read/write.
