A manual on protecting CDs against illegal copying, this book shows how crackers copy CDs using various access methods. The methods covered include the CDFS driver, cooked mode, SPTI, ASPI, the SCSI port, and the MSCDEX driver. Explained is how to prevent cracker break-ins using protections based on nonstandard CD formats such as the CD driver and weak CD sectors. Information on CD functioning fundamentals and tips related to CD protection in a format free of math and assembling-such as data formats, the scrambler, the Reed-Solomon coder/encoder, the CIRC coder /encoder, and a weak-sectors generator-are also provided. The main program interfaces, which provide direct control via peripheral devices on the application level in UNIX, Novell, and Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP, are considered , as is how to read and write RAW sectors.

After reading this book, readers will know how to change the format of a CD to make it accessible for reading and/or writing on most CD drives , but not accessible for copying.

Aimed at shareware and commercial software programmers, as well as users interested in CD protection, this book will help readers defeat hackers and crackers who try to copy CDs without authorization. It is targeted at advanced users as well as application system programmers.
