I was wondering, does anyone know of any Virtual CD/DVD software that used VXD drivers in Win98?
I ask because I would like to use CD audio for DOS games.
I know there is daemon tools 3.47 for Win98, but that uses a WDM driver for it's drive emulation and not VXD, so it doesn't work for DOS games.
Switching the sound card drivers from VXD over to WDM would mean that CD Audio would work, but it would also defeat the whole point of using an ISA sound card in the first place.
By using a WDM driver you end up using Microsoft's crappy sbemul.sys for DOS games rather than the actual capabilities of your ISA sound card.
I mean you might as well just use XP if you're gonna use WDM drivers for sound in DOS games.
So I ask, does anyone know of any Virtual CD/DVD software that used VXD drivers in Win98?
