I would like to know the way to protect from copying the DVD that I made with MyDVD ?
I use to burn the DVD compilation to an ISO file that I use with Disc Copier to burn on a DVD disc.

I try to use in Creator Classic the fonction "Burn From Disc Image File" and on Roxio Classic Burn SetUp I select under "General Option" Read-Only disc thinking that will do. But when putting the burn DVD in the DVD Player of my living room it said that it could'nt read it.  So I figure out this was not what I should do to protect my DVD.

I have always good result burning the ISO file with Disc Copier.

Anyone have a suggestion with ISO file DVD prior to burn it with Disc Copier or other software's of EMC 9 ?

Your help will be appreciate.
Thnx

If you burn the ISO with Disc Copier as you stated, you can't copy more to the dvd later.  The reason your DVD player can't read the disc is harder to diagnose.  Some players can only play +R and some -R.  Try a different brand of media and finally, you can try burning to disc at a slower speeds which has helped some.

I don't think there is a way in EMC to do that

Let's face it - even the CSS protected DVDs can (and do) get ripped regularly
If it ain't broke, fiddle with it until it breaks, then fiddle with it until you get it fixed

well, Beerman, has I mention above I succed everytime burning the ISO compilation of MYDVD with Disc Copier using DVD-R. And yes I don't want to add anything to the compilation after. I just thought that using Creator Classic with the fonction "Burn From Disc Image File" would be the way to get the DVD protection that I want.

What I did'nt mention is this DVD,  mention above, when playing on my PC using a DVD Player work fine.

Using the selection feature "Read-Only disc" under  Roxio Classic Burn SetUp "General Option" was what I thought to be the way to protect the DVD from Copying has "Read-Only disc" will prevent working with the files after by someone.

I just ask if someone know the way to protect a DVD from Copying using EMC 9 ?

And yes I know that using some specialise softwares like DVD Shrink could break the anti-copy protected DVD. But what I know also is that not everybody know about those softwares and how to use it.

So, if you don't mind me trying to protect my work I will do this if I can with EMC 9 like Sonic is saying to be capable in there advertisement.

I only need here the How to achive this from "Advence Users" of the product that know how to do this DVD protection.

Thnx

You usually can't do copy protection or encryption with the average off the shelf software.

EMC offers no copy protection.  Maybe I don't understand you clearly.  Do you want to encrypt your dvd or stop future copying to it?  You can't encrypt in EMC9 but you can stop further writing to the disc.

"Read only Disc" has nothing to do with copy protection. All it does, it finalizes the disc so that you cannot later add anything. As others have posted, EMC does not offer any copy protection.

The best way to protect your intellectual property (IMO) is to put a copyright notice on it. Most people and companies do not care about onesy-twosy copies that an individual might make but are interested in preventing pirates from mass producing and selling their work. A copyright notice gives you all the legal protection you need without going through the expense of purchasing expensive copy protection software that is doomed to defeat by the very pirates you're trying to thwart.
