  1. Hi,

    I have 7:1 dvd duplicator and want to add copyright protection while burning the disc. I find "External USB 3.0 port for Copystars SATA CD DVD blu ray Duplicator Disc copier" (screenshot attached) ... Its features mentioned on amazon site are :-

    Code:
    USB 3.0 to connect duplicator to PC
    One of the burner drive cannot be connected
    manual operation of mechanical toggle switch to control on/off
    When off- normal duplicator operation
    When On- the burner drive connected to PC via USB become external drive .
    will this hardware help me to add copyright protection if i connect it to my burner through usb and then burn dvds with copyright protection on my duplicator ?

    pls share your views....

    regards
    John

    Effective protection - No.

    If Hollywood can't pull effective protection off with commercial pressing plants and tens of million in budget to develop schemes, what chance do you realistically expect to have with a home duplicator from Amazon?

    You can't even use "ineffective" protection, USB or no USB.

    USB has nothing to do with it.
    Hollywood protections are built upon encryptions with the keys situated in non-user-generated areas of the disc. These areas are only available when creating PRESSED (replicated) discs, not BURNED (duplicated). Duplicators of ALL kinds can only access user-generated areas. No exceptions.

    That does not even describe 'copy protection'. Its just a toggle switch from duplication to a plain external drive.
