New version! - Alcohol brings new meaning to the word multimedia! It is without a doubt a leader in its class, bringing the ability to emulate and record CDs and DVDs together into one amazingly easy to use software program. Now includes Alcohol Xtra. A unique Pre-Mastering function.
Using the latest technology the program is constantly being developed and improved to add new features, allowing it to maintain it's position as a leading software package.
Imagine being able to store your most used CDs as images on your computer and just call them up at the click of a button! And then run them at 200x the speed of some CD drives and without requiring the CD itself! How about being able to make a backup of that CD onto another CD either using the CD itself or just using the image you have created? This is what Alcohol allows you to do and much more.
Do not have a CD/DVD writer? No problem, Alcohol 52% is the answer, with all the power and technological advantages of Alcohol 120%. Alcohol 52% is ideally suited for Laptop use (no need to take your expensive discs along to a meeting where they can become misplaced). Ideal for school/office environments where access to an image file by workstation users would be an advantage.
Please ensure your computer system meets the following requirements, otherwise Alcohol 52% may not work properly:
Intel/AMD based PC with Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista or 7 (x86/x64) operating system.
32MB (or more) of RAM.
10GB (or more) hard disk is recommended (a 74 minute CD image requires 650-700MB).
One or more bus-mastering SCSI and/or ATAPI buses.
One or more CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives. You can use a CD/DVD recorder as a reader if you have sufficient hard disk space to store a CD/DVD whole image.
One or more CD/DVD recorders (if you install more than 2 CD recorders, 700MHz CPU and 128MB RAM is recommended) - Only required for Alcohol 120%.
Internet connection is required to activate the software online (only required for retail version).
After install Alcohol must be run with Administrator rights enabled, otherwise Alcohol Virtual drives will not be enabled. To enable Alcohol virtual drives at a later time you will also need to run Alcohol with administrator rights.
