Copy Protection for DVD's

  Geraint J 18:40 20 Sep 2004

Does anyone know how I can copy protect DVD-R discs ? I have spent along time creating an information / video DVD and I am a bit worried about selling copies of it because I dont want people making pirate copies and selling them on. The discs are normal DVD-R 4.7gb.
Thank you

No you can't do it, commercial dvd's are easily copied, so what chance do you have?

actaully there are some DVDs that are copy protected..I dont know how they do it...but they must use something to stop them from being copied..I would do a google search and get answers from there..

I just want to stop the average PC user making a quick disc to disc copy using Nero for example. I know you cant stop determined PC savy folk

i,m a novice and can get past any protection so if the big companys cant protect their disc i dont think you can

No problem, just search for and download DVD Shrink 3.2.

It's free and it will remove the copy protection. It is not illegal so long as you only use it to make backups of your legaly bought DVD's and do not distribute the copies or sell the original.

I think DVD shrink can also add protection to your copies althogh its prob easy to get passed?
