I'm not sure what you mean by "Virtual CD Drive on Hard Drive" or "Virtual Hard Drive on USB Drive". I think you mean make a "Virtual Hard Drive" and let it act like a USB to Windows? If that's what you're asking (I hope not) than no, there is no way (unless there's 3rd party software I don't know about, which I doubt). Could you elaborate further as to what you mean?

Basically Mounting an ISO image as a drive. Works great.

As for the OP's question about a similar but opposite function for a USB drive. I know of no way to do this. So you're out of luck.

but not sure how it will perform over usb.. is it at least USB 3.0?!

.. why not just disassemble the external USB HDD and connect the HDD directly to your M/B?

Or are you trying to use a FLASH USB drive as a virtual?
