Hello! I know before someone says to do a search, I have done one. It seems I haven't found anything that would cater to my needs, so please read this if you can. Thanks so much for your help.If I have made a mistake in posting this thread in the wrong forum, please excuse me... if possible, then move it.
Ok, here's my situation... next week I need to distribute to a group of people some of my medical work, programs, video, audio, notes and study tips all in the sum of 18 CDR's (ppt/xml/word/mp3/wmv/dss/rm data [i]and[/i] audio files). The thing is my cdr copies/backups are in a [i]non copy protected format.[/i] What I need to do is burn CDR copies of this material into a secure [i]copy protected form.[/i]
Ok, before I continue, let me add that I am aware there are many many programs out there which will take the protection off like Alcohol or CDClone or what not. Stop grinning. I also figured that you could probably open these documents,save them etc.... or copy the cdr onto your HDD and burn them perhaps. Some people might say just encrypt the data. Unfortunately, this material needs to go out to these people to see,hear,read... and encrypting it is not going to help.
Now you're asking... why the hell are you doing this?? Well... it's just some people in my med school think everything is handed to them in a silver platter, and that isn't the case always. I know how people can be sometimes, and that some of this will probably be copied, but I could slow it down if at all. All I want is, that they come to me to directly get the matierial. I hope some of you would understand. I've spent practically 8 months doing this work,research,phone calls,$$$, etc. I'm not trying to boast about anything, make a profit, or go and get a copyright. It's just the principle.
So what steps and programs should I try and do for this?
I have two drives: one Internal CDR/W/DVD Combo Drive (on my Toshiba Satellite Laptop WinXP Pro,PIII,256mb,20G hdd) and an External USB 2.0 48X Plextor drive. The only software I have is the latest version of Nero Burning Rom (If I should use something else, then do let me know).
I was planning on putting the unprotected CDR in my internal drive, and creating a copy protected CDR on the external. Or should I copy the unprotected CDR contents back to my HDD?
I've also checked this and other forums, looking for a solution. Nothing too relevant. I really would like to get an opinion if there is a good secure way to do so? Also is there a way for not giving permission to copy files onto the hdd from the protected cd?There has to be some readily accessible programs out there that can do this. All in all, these copy protected CDR's have to be working and readable. I've checked these places already:

Yeah I know it was a bit long to read. :eek: Thanks again for all your help, advice and opinions in this matter. I hope there is something that can be done.
