I am developing some apps that auto-run from a USB drive. To get this to work, I have to send the software to the publisher who puts the software onto a partition of the USB drive (upto 5mb).
The result is a partition that appears to Windows as a CD-ROM and a partition that appears as a removable drive, and must be the next sequential drive letter. For example a PC with the drives C (H/D) and D (DVD-R) in use would see
E (CD-ROM) and F (Removable storage) when the drive is inserted.
Developing for this is difficult and to test, I have been buring my software to a CD, then inserting the CD and a normal removable drive into a computer.
I am looking to make a test, platform. Ideally it would be two folders - one for the CD and one for the Removable Drive which could be mounted to appear as such. I used to have a program called FakeCD which faked a CD from the contents of a folder. Is there simular to this for a USB drive?
If not, does anyone know how I can make a CD partition on a NORMAL CD drive, so I can test and retest without sending to the publishers?
