Alcohol 120% is one of the most popular CD/DVD emulator/backup applications. You can make full backups of your DVDs or CD and then mount the images on a virtual drive when you need to re use them. Alcohol 120% has the capability to emulate several drive protection systems such as SafeDisc and SecuROM. This allows Clones of DVDs or CDs which are protected by supported protection systems to be mounted and played on Alcohol’s virtual drive. If you are wondering what the Black Edition is, it’s a custom edition with additional features but is actually based on Alcohol 120% v1.9.6 ( Build 5513 ).
