Windows 7: Running Interactive CD off SD card?

Running Interactive CD off SD card?

I'm hoping someone has an answer for me. I am taking a Geology class and we were given a CD (interactive) when we bought our textbook. Instead of lugging around a CD I'd like to convert the CD into an image I can run off the SD card- if that's possible. Are there any free programs that will let me do this?

The CD is only 698 mb so I have a spare 2gb SD card I could use for this purpose.

You can download the Alcohol 120% Trial Version, which can create an ISO of the CD. You can download and run Daemon Tools Lite, which will run the ISO.

your sd card uses flash memory, so keep up with the cd just incase you have sectors fail and have to make a new one.

Nice. Thank you! I may be back with questions later regarding the Deamon Tools

So the key thing is to make an ISO image of the CD? I actually do have a couple of programs that do that. I just wasn't too sure how to run off an ISO image. Thanks again

Okay. Solved solved solved. I used a Linux program to make an ISO and then used Daemon Tools to launch the ISO.

Cool. Now I don't have to worry about a scratched disk, broken disk, or misplaced disk. Thanks!
