I'd like to burn to a virtual cd from ITunes. Is this possible? If so, how?

Hi bob

It's not possible, DT allows you only to mount an existing image file for read only access.

A company once made such a product but the reviews and compatibility seem poor.

There's another outfit that sells virtual CD/DVD burning software. I haven't tried it, so carpe diem:

I will have to remember this next time I use Itunes.

I would like a virtual CD Burner so that I can use the Audible.com Audible Manager to create ISO files (or another format) of my audio books. This way I can have the audio books in WAV format without burning 10-15 CDs for each book. Then I can store the WAV files on a DVD-R instead of 15 CDs per book. Better yet, I could convert the WAV files to MP3 or WMA.

I beleive the Audible Manager uses RoxioSDK for burning, but will only allow converting content to WAV format when burning CDROM from within the program.

Please help!

hmm, try using nero, it can make the nrg or iso format, and can burn direct mp3->audio cd, probably the easiest option for your audio book stuff..

I suppose those files are DRM protected in some way so they cannot be converted to any other format except by burning them to CD-R with either AudibleManager (their proprietary software) or iTunes. This is quite the hassle, which is what munchymuncher is trying to bypass. A virtual CD-R drive could be used by AudibleManager and iTunes, such that you'll get .wav files as output instead of an actual CD.

Did you try the Virtual CD/DVD software that was mentioned before in the thread?

bob_chauvin indicates that it works for burning to an image from iTunes, it may have a good chance of working from Audible.

Are there any ports for the linux tool DD? That is probably the best image file manager I've come across. Do whatever you like...
