Emulator Issues #18
Read from a virtual drive (for compressed mds)
Since isos take a lot of place, it would be great to add a plugin to read
discs from virtual drives, or make the current one compatible with
compressed mds. Of course, it's not an urgent matter but please take a look
at it. Thanks.

NP, sometimes everybody has a bad day!
But I have to admit I never thought about reripping it.
I rip them and have NTFS compression activated with all my HDDs, so I don't have
that much problems with big files. Does it make such a big difference a compressed
mds vs. a ntfs compressed ISO?

NTFS compressed ISOS are nearly as big on harddrive as RARed or ZIPed ones, so it
shouldn't be a big difference in size, but would also save some space on FAT32
drives (or linux drives?). IIRC I read on a MSDN article, that the designers of NT
opted for speed over reduced file size, when they designed the NTFS compression, so
it shouldn't make such a big difference, but dunno.
But it wouldn't be a bad idea, to support compressed mds via the ISO plugin, aswell,
I have to totally admit after discussing with you.
