ISO drive emulation is an ideal solution for computers that do not have optical drives (i.e Ultrabooks™, Netbooks). Using hardware based ISO emulation, the S2510BU3ISO USB 3.0 HDD Virtual ISO Enclosure allows you to easily create and mount up to 3 different virtual Blu-ray/DVD/CD ROM images, ensuring maximum performance while eliminating the hassle and expense of complicated virtual ISO software.

This enclosure lets you turn almost any 2.5-inch SATA hard drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) into an external virtual ROM drive through a USB port (optimal performance with USB 3.0, backward compatible with USB 2.0).

The enclosure supports large capacity hard drives (up to 2TB), and also doubles as a standard external hard drive enclosure that can be used to maximize system storage expansion and backup capabilities.

The S2510BU3ISO virtual ISO HDD enclosure is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

The StarTech.com Advantage
  • Hardware based ISO emulation is fast and platform independent, requiring no software or driver installation
  • SuperSpeed USB 3.0 allows for up to 5Gbps of data bandwidth for faster data transfers, while remaining backward compatible with USB 2.0 systems
