virtual drive pro and the Mac

Greetings Folks.

I have a question that I think I know the answer to but I don't like it so thought I would drop in here to see if maybe there is a different one.

I am a contractor in Afghanistan and right before I came out here I bought a fully loaded MacBook Pro Retina. As a PC guy of long standing I have to say I love this thing. it was the most loaded and lightest I could find in either arena.

I had a bunch of CD's that I did not want to bring out here with me and since I had a copy of Farstone's Virtual Drive Pro on my PC I used it to make Virtual disks of all my software that I wanted to bring. my thought was to get a copy for the mac or find something that would create a virtual drive on my mac and let me run the .vcd files. for installs and such.

Unfortunately I have not been able to find such a beast. Farstone does not make a Mac Version of their software. My only solutions that seems to be viable at this point is to load virtual drive pro up in my windows 7 partition and convert the .vcd files to .iso files but I really would prefer to not have to do that.

anyone know of a virtual drive program available on the Mac that will read .VCD Disks? (VCD stands for VIrtual CD NOT Video CD)

thanks much for any help or insight.

Cheers, RDJ
