Description Brice Arnould (un_brice) 2003-04-29 09:43:24 UTC
(please excuse me for my bad english) 
As said on the webpage: 
"Virtual CD is a kernel module for Linux. With it you can simulate a CD drive + CD 
with simple cue/bin files, which are common in the windows world. It includes an 
user space program, which controls the kernel module." 
At the opposite of traditionals "loop devices", it's allow you to load incorrect 
images, such as copy protected CD. 
Be carefull, for the moment anyone can  load/unload files.
