    As far as I've seen anything on CD can be copied - it's just a matter of know-how and the appropriate tools. Are you asking for CDs that cannot be copied easily or without special tools?

    copied cds

    yes, i mean cds that can not be copied at all. say movie cds not being able to be copied so as to prevent piracy. are there any such cds

    Like I said, I've never run across one that I couldn't actually copy. If you find one let me know so I can try.

    Would we not actually be doing the work for you if that’s part of your assignment?

    I know my University run checks with special software on all assignments presented, using google for matching of phrases etc to protect against plagiarism.

    As much as I know people on here could help me, I often struggle and find out the answers myself because I'd be worried about breaking rules regarding plagiarism.

    No worries, just making sure that's all, for your sake, not mine. :haha:

    Hmm...Surly if there was a CD that could not be copied (i've never found one), wouldn't some big music or other company have picked up on it by now?

    Maybe it's more software related or something?..Like a way of locking the disc to absolute read only maybe...(i don't have a clue)
