What is a vcd file and how do I open a vcd file?
A VCD file is a disk image of a CD or DVD. Windows recognizes it as an actual disk, even though the data is on the hard drive. VCD files allow CDs and DVDs to be used without physical drives, and are useful for mounting disks on network computers. The virtual CD files may be placed in a directory of the hard disk and played from this source location using a supported utility that can be used to open and view the types of files stored in the virtual CD image file. Virtual CD files are incorporated with disk image compression and formatting specifications used for archiving different types of files and even the entire content stored on optical disks and hard drives into one VCD file which can be mounted in a virtual drive to access the data saved in the virtual CD file. Encoding standards are also implemented into a virtual CD file that allow its content to be stored in the VCD file format. Appended with the .vcd extension, many Microsoft Windows-based systems are implemented with support for detecting these VCD files as actual optical disks even when these virtual CD files are stored in directories of hard drives connected to the system.
