Question Burn audible audio to a virtual burner


I am a linux user. I a win7 VM.

I would like to present the windows vm with a virtual cd burner that will write .iso files on the host.

I've looked at cdemu... but I don't know if it will work.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "write .iso files on the host". Do you mean, write *.iso files to a disk using the host's CD/DVD burner?

That is correct. Strange I know.

I want to emulate a dvdrw on my host, so that the windows 7 VM can use it as a dvd burner.

Why? because I am allowed to burn the DRM'd audio content. I'd like to figure out a way to skip the burning process.

I do not want to burn real DVDs. I'd like a nice collection of iso files for my archive.

It sounds as if your best route would be to create an *.iso.

You should be able to do that within the VM, than transfer the *.iso file to your host machine.

Googling "create iso windows" should turn up a number of tools for doing this.
