What is a vcd file and how do I open a vcd file?

A virtual CD file is categorized as a disk image file that can be used to access the content of a CD or DVD without the need for a physical CD-ROM/RW or a DVD-ROM/RW drive. These virtual CD files can be placed in a directory of the hard disk and played from this source location using a supported application that can be used to open and view the types of files stored in the virtual CD image file. These virtual CD files are integrated with disk image compression and formatting specifications used for archiving different types of files and even the entire content stored in optical disks and hard drives into one virtual CD file which can be mounted in a virtual drive to access the data saved in the virtual CD file. Data encoding standards are also implemented into these virtual CD files that allow its content to be stored in the VCD file format. Affixed with the .vcd extension, many Microsoft Windows-based systems are implemented with support for detecting these VCD files as actual optical disks even when these virtual CD files are stored in directories of hard drives connected to the computer.
