Preventing CD Duplication

  Rabi 23:51 08 Dec 2004

My child needs to submit a CD-Rom of a project for review before submission to a final examining body. She is paranoid about a copy of her work being made before it is returned to her for various reasons.

I am looking for software that would prevent a duplicate copy of a CD, audio or data, from being made and played.

Sometime this year I know I saw a programme that does what I am asking about being given away free on a magazine CD, but I can't remember which nagazine it was!

Anyone know a web site where I can find this programme?

Much obliged for the assisitance.

It can't be done!

There are programs that claim to be able to protect the contents, but I promise you, it's misleading. A classic example is Microsoft and they are suffering from piracy worldwide.

If someone is determined enough, it can be copied, but I would hardly think an examining body is likely to be the perpetrator.

Tell her to relax and concentrate on her studies;-)

Having said all that, see if this helps click here

Thanks, I concur on the "determined person" bit; however we are not dealing with sophisticated hackers here, just unprincipled people. Long story, but there is a valid reason to prevent the CD from being copied and shown to others,

Thanks, will visit the site.

A word of warning, many of these so-called security progs can make the CD unreadable in some players and personally, they are not worth it. Any CD can be copied easily, even DVDs with encryption. I assume that she is not working for the CIA, so she can submit her project quite happily. If it is so good that she is paranoid about it being 'lifted' then she will get an A* pass.
