How to Emulate CDs Using Alcohol 52%


Alcohol Software is one of the leading developers of optical disc emulators. Alcohol 120%, the company's flagship program, can burn, save and emulate CD and DVD image files in many different formats. Alcohol 52% is a lighter version of this robust classic and carries much of the same functionality. While it lacks burning capability, it can still save images and emulate up to six virtual drives.

  • Download and install Alcohol 52%. The program is free and is available from Alcohol Software's homepage, or you can find it on numerous freeware download sites around the Web.

  • Double-click the Alcohol 52% desktop icon to run the program. There's also a shortcut to the program in the "Programs" folder of the Start Menu. Depending on the installation, there may also be a link to it in the Quick Launch menu.

  • Open the "Virtual Drives" panel under the "Options" menu. This lets you tell Alcohol 52% how many emulated CD drives you'd like it to create on your hard drive.

  • Make sure at least one virtual drive is active. If none are up and running, select a new number from the "Number of Virtual Drives" drop-down menu.

  • Use the Image Finder to search your computer for CD image files and add them to your project. The program searches its own folder first by default, so you'll likely need to change the location to find your image.

  • Right-click the CD image and select "Mount image on device" to emulate the disc. The CD should now appear in "My Computer."
