I intend to burn some hidden files onto a CD with a only a visible direct access into them, but the folder holding these files carry only the direct access onto the CD. I think that this trick might protect files on CDs from unauthorized copy. Does any one know how to do that?

It is impossible to protect CDs, DVDs or BluRays created in the home from being copied if that is your question.

If The record companies and Hollywood movie studios can't keep their product from being copied with a large budget for research, how can a person on a PC hope to

As I see it all that it would take to defeat what you propose is to set the computer to show hidden files, folders and drives.

This comes up on www.videohelp.com all the time.

Good Luck
