Emulate a CDRW or DVDRW Drive in Windows XP

I need to emulate a CDRW or DVDRW drive in Windows XP.  I want to be able to have any Windows app see this virtual drive and be able to write to it.

I have tried that software but for some reason I cannot get it to burn with all my apps. I get a burn disc failed error (4310) with iTunes.

Unfortunately neither one of those will work, Daemon-tools will not emulate a CD burner.  Nero has a image burner but it is only available through Nero.

You say you get a "4310" error when you burn discs.....
Try blocking ALL traffic with your firewall before you burn discs.
This is a built in copy protection.

Is there a reason why it has to be a cdrw? If this is not a requirement, the simpleist solution would be to set up a Shared folder map to it from each computer (this will give it a drive letter) and just put the data there,

I have found Kerio Personal firewall will eliminate this problem when you "Stop all Traffic" before you burn a disc.

tsieler - I need it to be a cdrw (dvdrw would also work)

Its not over the internet, it local, from program to program.
i think its called a 127.0.0.0 call.

The last 0 should be a 1.

127.0.0.1 "loopback" is what Kerio calls it.
