CD Protection

Hi! I don’t know whether you’re the right bunch of people to ask. But I’m a programmer (VB mainly) and I’m in the process of trying to create some anti copy protection software that will detect if a cd is trying to protect itself! basically what I want to know is…

What types of copy protection are there?

the only ones I’ve come into contact with is the one used by the BMG label that installs a driver to prevent the system from reading the cd as an audio cd! this is simple to get around by pressing the shift key or disabling autorun. but I somehow don’t think that this is the only type!

Search around the site a little. There’s ample material here because it’s been done. Check out this thread and over here
