It would be good if the functionality of the EDM window could be incorporated into the main window's Device List. In this way if you right click on a drive you would have an option to disable/enable the selected drive. When disabled, instead of disappearing, the drive would remain displayed just with a "red X" over it as in the EDM window. This would avoid having to open a separate EDM window and reduce the number of clicks required to disable/enable a drive.

Yes, this is a good and convenient idea.

However, from my personal observation, this EDM function in Alcohol is just a link to the Windows Control Panel. It is not really a function of Alcohol, it is just provided for the ease of users, in fact this should be operated through Windows.

(I must emphasise that this is just my own observation, and it may not be the truth. I discovered that because I switched my Alcohol to English interface, then I executed EDM in Alcohol, and EDM displayed Chinese instead of English, the reason was that My Windows was Chinese version.)

If it is a link to Windows, then it will possibly be very tricky to incoporate Windows's component to Alcohol. Again, the developers always have their opinions, I may be wrong.
