Is there any app like "virtual drive" of farstone? We can use this app to create virtual CD/ DVD for playing without disks on CD/DVD drives.

You can create ISOs of disks with

dd if=/dev/cdrom of=~/disk.iso

You will likely have to adjust the path of the cdrom drive to meet your system (I have seen them named all kinds of things.

To mount an existing ISO

mount -o loop ~/disk.iso /media/path

Where media path is the spot you wish to mount it.

It helps! More simple way, I use bareso burning app to create iso image. Right click the iso image then chose "Open with Disk Image Mounter" the image will be mounted and run. – evergreen May 13 '13 at 15:20
