in another forum I found a post from a person authoring DVDs with DVD Studio Pro.
He found and used the option to protect the disk from copies, but then he tried to copy the dvd just burned and found the protection not working: he was able to copy the disk without removing any protection or whatsoever. Obviously, the protection was missing.
My question now is: I know DVDs are scrambled with CSS, but why burning them directly is not possible? the answer will probably help me to understand why home made DVDs cannot also be burned with protections in them.
Maybe a firmware limitation? maybe the need of different burners/media?
I think it must be something with the burner, because if it were a software problem, it would have been overcome.
But the answers are not clear to me and, it seems, in conflict.
I am not asking for software to copy DVDs, I know perfectly hot to make copies of them, if I ever needed.
I’m interested in the process needed to burn home made clips into DVDs with protection applied to them and the reasons why it cannot be done with normal burners/software.
