    nope, not really possible mate. Although if you have pdf's on there then it will be a bit more difficult for someone to alter your content.

    If it was possible to make cds copyproof, commercial cds would all be copyproof.

    Here's a secret: If it can be read, it can be copied.

    ROFL.

    There is always a way to copy it. hell take screenshots of it, print the screenshots, use a scanner with OCR to re-digitize it.

    CDs have been around since 1981. If there were a way to copy-protect them, they'd have done it by now. Even DVDs aren't copy-protected, they just force all DVD player manufacturers to sign an agreement not to release the secret code used to encrypt the data. That all went to hell when some cheap DVD player was sold with its computer interface still attached, and someone just read the code right out of the hardware. Suddenly anybody could copy a DVD if they could download a virus-free copy of the decoder.
