I want a technical article or software that tells me how to make a un-copiable cd.
My only need is that the serial number of the volume cannot be duplicated, it does not matters if they copy the contents.
I tried TZ-Copy protection, MateusZ, CCD-Lock (did not work with my QSI cd-r drive, the protect button is disabled) and other free cd protections. But CloneCD can copy everything I try.
I will protect a software with the following protection schema:
1: The software will consist of 2 CD's
2: I will write the CD # 2 and get the Volume Serial number from it.
3: I will hardcode that serial number in my app, and when the software runs, it will check if the cd with that serial number is on any CD-Rom drive. If not it wont run.
So, the most important thing is the serial number.
I want that the CD cannot be copied with the most popular CD copiers:

If you have other idea on how to protect software that is user friendly ( I dont want to bother users with serial numbers, activations, etc.) Tell me, I'm open to suggestions.
a plus will be the VB6 code that does the checking and that is easy to integrate with any app.
Document and/or program that help me creating a copy protected cd.
