I have a file in iTunes on Windows in VirtualBox that can be burned to CD / DVD. I could burn this file to a CD / DVD and rip it to my computer but I don't want to waste a CD / DVD so I'm looking for a way to create a virtual device in Linux Mint / Ubuntu that can be mounted in VirtualBox as CD / DVD burner and write the data from iTunes into an image file. Is something like that possible? How can I achieve this?

EDIT: I found Phantom Drive for Windows and it does exactly what I need. But it would be great to have such tool for Linux.

  • You could mount the optical drive of the host and burn with that! – George Udosen Aug 30 '18 at 20:57
  • My host has no optical drive and I don't want to buy a CD that I would throw away after this – Thomas Sablik Aug 30 '18 at 20:59
  • What do you mean by virtual device, CD/DVD burner? – George Udosen Aug 30 '18 at 21:00
  • I mean a device that looks like a CD/DVD burner for other programs but it's virtual and creates images. So that I can use it in VirtualBox as CD burner. – Thomas Sablik Aug 30 '18 at 21:02
  • In iTunes I only can burn the playlist. I can't create an image or create an iso file. I need a CD burner but currently I don't have one. I want to create a virtual device that can be used as CD burner. – Thomas Sablik Aug 30 '18 at 21:04
