Hi There,

I'd love to have a utility to have virtual cd's stored on a usb drive.  In other words, I do not want an application loaded on the pc itself.  I'd like to be able to plug in a usb drive and choose from a library of virtual cd images stored on it.

Any ideas?

There is a portable version of Alcohol 120%. Just do a search in google and you will find it.
You can also use the following.
Portable PowerISO 3.8
Portable Virtual CD v.

ypu can download all of them here.

Sorry for neglecting this.

Neither solution is really suitable as a "portable" app!

I'll keep looking,
