CDemu – An Optical Disk Drive Emulator

Sponsored Link
CDemu is a software suite designed to emulate an optical drive and disc (including CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs) on the Linux operating system.

CDEmu consists of:

a kernel module implementing a virtual drive-controller
libmirage which is a software library for interpreting optical disc images
a daemon which emulates the functionality of an optical drive+disc
textmode and GTK clients for controlling the emulator
Optical media emulated by CDemu can be mounted within Linux. Automounting is also allowed.

gCDEmu is a GTK application for controlling CDEmu daemon.

It provides a graphic interface that allows performing the key tasks related to controlling the CDEmu daemon, such as loading and unloading devices, displaying devices' status and retrieving/setting devices' debug masks.

In addition, the application listens to signals emitted by CDEmu daemon and provides notifications via libnotify (provided that python bindings are installed).
