Using DVD-9 Dual Layer disc as a way to have copy protection

As we know CSS copy protection on DVD has been compromised soon after the method was announced. A Norwegian kid cracked the copy protection scheme in 1999.  Since then it is well known that is someone wants to copy a DVD there is always a way.  The only solution is to make it less convenient, and using DVD-9 is among one and the simplest one.

The argument is that dual layer DVD-R is more expensive and is not very convenient to copy.  Most disc copying software, including the famous NERO, is not very well equipped to do dual-layer copying.  Layer break point is linchpin .  Most software simply cannot figure out where the layer break point should be and will do a simple fill up the first layer and then dump the remaining data to the second layer scheme.  Doing so will definitely create a coaster.

Do consider using DVD-9 if you want to make plagiarism more difficult.

2 seconds between audio tracks

All audio CD authoring programs have a default 2 seconds pause between tracks.  But most rap music are continuous and by breaking the long track into several tracks serves only the fast forward function on a CD player. But if you forget to check the “No Pause Between Tracks” checkbox on your music CD authoring software then the result will be abnormal between tracks.  We advise our clients to either put everything in one track, or specifically tell us to have no pause between tracks.

If you compile your CD using NERO watch out the dialog as shown below.

Slip case for disc replication

New Cyberian now offers slipcase printing for all our CD, DVD, and Blu-ray replication products.

Slip case can be used as an extra protection for the standard packaging.  For instance, when a jewel case is slipped into a slip case, the whole package immediately becomes less susceptible to shattering when the case drops on the floor.  Not only that, the slip case also protects the jewel case from scratching.
