I am a long time Alcohol 120% user and owner of 2 lifetime licenses, and I believe I am aware of what Alcohol can and cannot do. I was suprised to read on Aldohol-soft's main page (http://www.alcohol-soft.com/) that:

Alcohol 120%, is a powerful Windows CD and DVD burning software...

This text is supposed to be read by prospective customers and I find it to be rather misleading.

It has never been Alcohol-soft's intention to sell "CD and DVD burning software" - I, among others, have asked on more than one occasion to include simple burning functions (not burning of images, but of files, etc.) in Alcohol 120%, but have always been refused with the explanation that there are enough dvd burning software titles out there, and Alcohol is something else.

OK, if it is not a dvd burning software primarily - why market it as one? And if you would like to be selling CD and DVD burning software, why not add more burning options to Alcohol?

I think you will find that for some time now using the Alcohol Xtra function that it has been able to write files to disc so i can not see where you are going with this that we are "misleading"

I was told the same thing, that 120 was built as a Virtual drive program that was able to burn files. I think that the marketing should also still attempt to promote the vitual drive aspect along with the burning drive features. I was pulled in to Alcohol for the virtual drive and have stayed just for it. The burning to me is a bonus, but that is just me.
