Can someone point me in the direction of a (free if possible) emulator.I have Windows XP Home on an AMD Athlon 4, 3500+.
I have a golf game, Tiger Woods 2004 PGA tour, I would like to out on one.

"Out" should read "put".

Emulation of what?

  bruno 12:12 09 Feb 2008

I am trying to create a virtual disc to install a game programme on it. I am not having much luck at the moment. Found Daemon Tools, which my Grandson uses but it does not appear to recognise my disc, which has Safedisc protection on it. He also uses Alcohol 120% for ripping the CD,but,again, my disc is not recognised. Maybe it can't be done. I was just hoping to find someone who knows more about it than me-which would not be difficult.

You really need to find which computer system the program was designed for. Is it an Amiga, Spectrum, Mac or what?

Try typing Emulators into Google,amazing what it turns up

Bruno is referring to virtual optical drives, not computer emulators as such.

Brundle has the right idea.It is a PC game deigned to work on XP.there are three discs involved and the idea is to protect the discs and save the bother of inserting them every time.

This appears to be what you want click here but it is an `emulator` of a drive. Usually, in my experience, the term `emulator` is used to describe a piece of software that enables one OS platform to function as another.

Johndrew.
You are quite right, I didn't use the proper word initially. I should have said Virtual Drive. I will look at your link. Thank you.

Given up on this as the game I am trying to put on the virtual drive has defeated all my efforts to read it.
