Alcohol is a virtual DVD and CD rom drive with full support for burning and ripping discs. It is geared towards users who run PC games or other types of disc images. It also makes running DVD and CD games much faster by removing the slow CD reading speed from the equasion. That means you can read CD and DVD images at up to 200x, much faster than running from a disc.
Another advantage of using a program like Alcohol 120% is saving battery power when running on a notebook or netbook computer; running a CD involves an extra motor which tends to eat into battery power.
Also worth noting is that using discs often can lead to wear and tear of your original disc; it also gives parents the knowledge that kids aren't likely to wreck a disc when playing their favourite PC games.
The program is not freeware, but you're free to run it for a trial period of 14 days.
Alcohol 120% can mount up to 31 virtual CD or DVD drives.
The interface of Alcohol's product is very easy to get around. Mounting discs takes literally seconds and converting DVDs, CDs and Blu-ray discs is as simple as a few clicks away.
Supported formats for mounting discs is growing and comprehensive; ISOs, BINs, Nero images, CloneCD images and CDRWin are some of the more popular ones.
The most recent versions of Alcohol 120% have included support for blu-ray burning and ripping.
Alcohol 120% is software which can mount virtual drives from ISO images.
