Help - Encrypt Cd

 Share

Question

I have Roxio Creator NXT Pro and am trying to password protect/encrypt a CD or DVD. I watched a video that said you need to pick Burn Data Disc Advanced, but it doesn't look like I have that option under Burn/Copy. Does Roxio Creator NXT Pro have this capability? If so, can someone please help me and walk me through the steps to password protect/encrypt a CD or DVD? Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Under Roxio Burn, security enable password protection.

The very useful "Creator Classic" [burn Data Disc Advanced] has been sneakily removed in the night from Creator NXT, and you are left with the little app Roxio Burn Secure which pops up an icon in the bottom right corner of your screen when you insert a disc in your drive. :(

Burn Secure takes us back to the 'Bad Old Days' ™ in some things, but it will produce encrypted discs. For those of you who can't see it, here's how it's done.

 

Insert a disc and the Roxio Burn Secure icon appears.

Click on the bottom right downward-pointing symbol to see the menu.

Click Options to see the options menu, and check the box for password protection, then click Apply.

Now use Windows Explorer to drag the desired files and drop them onto the Roxio Burn icon. If you want folders on the disc, build them up on your desktop first, and then drag them all to the Roxio Burn icon.

Click on the Burn Disc icon, give the app a password, and click on the Burn Disc button to make it all happen.

Note that when you insert this disc into a drive the Roxioburnreader is autorun from the disc, and you are required to give the password.

Failure to give that means you are not allowed to see the hidden part of the disc which contains your files.

 

If your security system has disabled Autorun (which is very common these days), your user will have to navigate the visible part of the disc and manually run the file RoxioBurn\RoxioBurnReader.EXE to enter the password and access the files.

 

Regards,

Brendon
