My HP notebook dont have any optical drive. currently Windows 7 & Windows 10(x64) are installed back to back. So I am seeking for one which the OS would recognize as a optical drive & that is simply not just for mounting any ISO but doing other simulation jobs also. I tried a couple of programs but none showing as optical drive on Windows explorer. Is there any such software?

  • Your question is too vague. May you please give some examples of simulation jobs.

  • @NickDelta e.g Cannot make own Windows10 system repair disc(on GUI) since there is no such in my knowledge.
