    I am looking for a program that will password protect Cd and DVD. I am puting together a training cd and DVD that will require the person to enter a password to access the files or watch the DVD. Is there such a thing? I would like the password to have an expire date with a master password to always access the cd. Can any one help?

    I've never done it, but I have a Plextor drive and it comes with Plex Tools and that will allow you to do it.

    The process is fairly simple but you have first to encrypt the data so no one can bypass your protection.

    Have a look at this program available at:-

    http://www.gold-software.com/download3059.html

    ""SecurMedia is ideal for sharing all types and forms of
    sensitive information on PC removable storage media including audio,
    video, documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. The
    SecurMedia/SecurWebCD plug-in is compatible with all Microsoft®
    Windows® operating systems, including Windows 98 SE, ME®, 2000®, XP®
    (Professional and Home versions), and Windows NT® 4.0 and higher""

    Another option would be to simply use WINZIP
    to create a self-extracting executable of the entire contents of the
    disc that is password protected. You could have this self-extracting
    file set to autorun when the disc is inserted. Only problem with this
    solution is that the contents must first be completely extracted to
    the user's hard drive before whatever is on the disc can be
    read/executed/etc.

    Good Luck
