Is there any Software or Tool that can Emulate DVD contents using CD-ROM. As we know that there r alot of emulators that can read Play station CD, so I hope that there should be any sw to Emulate dvd...

If you have the DVD "image" on your workstation already (for example, an ISO file you downloaded), you can do what you seek with something like daemon-tools.

However, if you have a real DVD disc, and you're attempting to read it using your CD drive-- stop.  It just cannot be done, and no software package will "make" a CD drive read a DVD disc.    

Playstation CD's are still CD's---  the "emulation" you're talking about is, in that example, a method to play a playstation game using your PC.   But, the hardware is exactly the same as the PC--  the cd drive in a playstation and a cd drive in a PC are the same hardware- with the same lasers, etc.

DVD drives and CD drives are *VERY* different in terms of the laser(s), lens(es), etc.
No, DVDs require a different laser to read the pits in the track.  You cannot physically use a CDROM drive to read DVDs - the spacing is completely different.

What is emulation?
I cant emulate using daemon tool...
I tried all other softwares but failes...

Do something plz
Emulating, in this case, means copying the contents of a DVD to your hard drive (as an ISO for example) and making your computer "think" you have a DVD-ROM drive by mapping that file as a virtual drive.  You will still need a DVD-ROM to copy the contents over though.

well musalman,
for sure you can not read dvds without a dvd-rom device or just a cd-rom, but you can make a virtual image with a device that can read dvds like a dvd-rom (RW), combo drives and mount it later in a computer which wasn't a dvd-rom with a virtual drive.
