Hi,

I would like to create a DVD that is plays on PCs only, but plays only if the DVD is registered by phone or by internet. Sort of how Windows XP or any other software operate.

Does anyone know which company does this, and what the procedure is called? That's a form of encryption?

If this is sort of a form of encryption, can this encryption be broken?

thank you for your time

Hi,

It's possible and a lot of people do it, you would be making a data DVD that auto runs when you load it into the DVD Drive, then a menu would come up where you enter the code or what have you.

Any software design company should be able to do this.

If your near Sydney tell me and I will look around, if not:

In google type “CD Authoring” or “software development” or something along those lines. Check the phone book for multimedia production companies, basically your looking for a company that makes CD and DVD multimedia discs, games are an example of the type of thing your looking for. All you need is someone that knows how to use DVD/CD authoring software.

Macromedia Authorware 7 is a product that can make these DVD's:

If this is sort of a form of encryption,
Yes.

can this encryption be broken?
Always. If you send your product to millions of people, someone will break it, but if you send it to say, 100, or 1000, chances are none of these people will know how to break encryption.

Good Luck!
