    Been trying to create a CD image mounted on my Desktop, as to load the program it needs to know that the CD is in the optical drive of the macbook air. But the program doesn't actually use the CD, its just verififying that I own a copy.

    Is there anyway I could start the program without actually having the CD in my drive? Anyway of making the Computer think that the CD is acually present, such as mounting the CD image on the Desktop?

    Well, you can certainly rip a mountable CD image using Disk Utility, and then mount it onto the desktop.

    Whether or not that will 'fool' the program depends on the application - some will accept that as the CD, others won't.
