I am not too smart. How do I use the virtual clone drive? I see where I now have an extra drive in explorer and mmy computer but I can't put anything there and I didn't understand the help section of clone cd.

Open My Computer, right click on "Sheep" Virtual Drive and mount a CloneCD image...

Why doesnt he remember wich image was mounted :(

I used daemon-tools for years, but with the recent versions i had problems shutting down the PC, so now i removed it and tried Clonecd tray, works great, but it doesnt remember\remount tha image after a reboot.

Any suggestions?

Well, this is a new feature of CloneCD and it needs some tweaking. Wait for new releases - I'm sure they'll be more user friendly - more like DAEMON Tools. :wink:

Got It

I have it running now and for the most part it is a really fine addition to CLone CD. It requires HD space but I have plenty and now don't need to bother with crax at all. What a great addition. I have installed atlas's , clip art, graphics programs that always needed the CD for templates and several games that there were no crax for such as Forsaken...which I will finish one day :-)

Thanks for your help and posts !!

I gotta agree with HJS about remembering what was mounted on which drive at re-boot. I think that this is a very worthwhile feature but why even bother with up to 8 virtual drives if you have to re-mount to each one after a re-boot. In that instance, 1 drive possibly 2 is all that I will get any use out of. I guess the only other use would be for a printing suite that had a lot of graphics on separate discs but even then I am fishing for uses. However, being their first time out with this method, I think they did an outstanding job overall with the implementation of it. I just hope that maybe someone from Elby will see these suggestions and weigh their merits for the next upgrade. Oh well, I still LOVE CloneCD!!!!!!
