Virtual Drives - Creating

Basic Info Creating Virtual Drives Deleting Virtual Drives Registering Existing Virtual Drives Burning Virtual Drives To CD-R

You can create a Virtual Drive in 2 ways:

Create a New Virtual Drive From Scratch

Create a New Virtual Drive from an existing SCSI-ATAPI Drive

You can delete a Virtual Drive by simply right-clicking on it and selecting "Delete." This brings up the dialog on the right. You can destructively delete the file that represents the Virtual Drive, or you can simply remove the reference to the Virtual Drive on the Translator interface without erasing the Virtual Drive from your hard drive.

You can also delete a Virtual Drive by deleting it using any other Windows method. When Translator starts up again or Refreshes, and it finds the file doesn't exist, it will unregister it automatically.

There may be instances where you have reinstalled Translator or did something to erase the references to the Virtual Drive in the system registry. You can "register" them back into Translator by using the Register Virtual Drives menu option under Tools. You can also unregister your Virtual Drives by selecting Erase References under Tools, and select Virtual Drives. This does not erase your Virtual Drives, it simply erases the reference within Translator for it.

Once you have created a Virtual Drive, you can drag and/or drop and perform functions just like any other SCSI-ATAPI Drive. That is one purpose of Virtual Drives - to emulate the existence of an external SCSI Drive that you would hook up to your sampler in software, on your computer.
