Need more drives



I am setting up my children's computer, and to save them taking the cd's in and out I am mounting ISOs of the cds on virtual drives. But I have just reached the limit it allows with the "Z".
One set of the educational disks alone come to 24 and I also have many more I want to put on. Is there any way to increase the amount allowed?

I am doing it this way as it has been the easiest and cheapest way (free) to do it, but is there another way I could do it? If I loaded several ISO images on a DVD and then mounted that on a virtual drive would that work?

Thanks

Graham.

Alcohol 120% will do it http://www.alcohol-soft.com/ (Not free, though), as will a freebie from Microsoft.

I can't find the M$ one on their site.

As it's a freebie, though, I've put it here, for you:

I hope you have a lot of RAM.

Thanks, but VirtualCD is what I am already using to mount my images.
But I have reached the limit of 26 drives it will allow.
What I need is someway of increasing the number of drive so they are not just named from A > Z or someway to mount more than one cd image per drive, is this possible?

Or is there another easy way of stopping the need to keep putting the cd's in every time.

Looking at the Alcohol site it says it can create up to 31 drives so I assume it must be possible, but I roughly need 50 drives so far.

Thanks

Graham.
