Alcohol 120% is a fully functional and powerful CD/DVD-ROM virtualization and disc recording/burning solution, developed independently by the original author of Fantom CD who later started his own business. Compared with Fantom CD, its function is more complete and powerful, the interface is more friendly, the program is more refined, and the operation is more convenient. At the same time, it was also the most attractive disc copying software after CloneCD.

Alcohol 120% consists of two major functions: disc burning and virtual drive. In terms of disc burning, it breaks through the common copy protection technologies (such as SafeDisc, SecuROM, StarForce), makes it easy to copy the encrypted disc. And, it supports using multiple burners simultaneously to perform reading and burning actions, allows to set passwords for valuable images, has a built-in search mode for images, supports direct copying from disc to disc, etc.

In terms of virtual drive, it can completely and accurately simulate the original disc, makes/burns CD/DVD image files, creates up to 31 virtual drives, and simulates the disc reading speed up to 200 times. Besides, it also has various practical settings, e.g.: skip reading errors, improved sector scanning, bad sector emulation, and so forth.

The disc simulation function of Alcohol 120% can directly recognize, read and run multiple types (AudioCD, VideoCD, PhotoCD, Mixed Mode CD, CD Extra, Data CD, CD+G, DVD, Data, DVD-Video) of optical disc image files in various formats (MDS, CCD, BIN/CUE, ISO, CDI, BWT, BWI, BWS, BWA, including a variety of image file formats that are proprietary to some burning programs), can burn them directly to a blank CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+RW disc, and supports a variety of disc burning methods: Session-At-Once, Disc-At-Once, RAW Session- At-Once, RAW Session- At-Once + SUB, RAW Disc- At-Once (with full PQ/R-W sub-code support).
