Hi Guys,
Another newbie here . . . . just came across the forum and wondered if this might be the right place to start!

I'm hoping to start a small company working with video in the tourism industry.
I'll be supplying blank DVD disks with a company logo on them, and want to "Police" how many DVD's are burned by my customer.

I'm thinking of getting a software engineer to build me a simple program which opens up with a logo and some info, then basically goes into a DVD burning program . . . . now the technical bit:-

I'd like the program to only burn DVD's which I send my customer - I'm wondering if there's a way to put a small piece of code onto a blank DVD, which still enables it to burn without affecting the DVD. This code would then be read by my custom program, and the only disks which would burn would be the coded DVD's - rejecting any other DVD as non-burnable in this program. I would of course restrict access to the PC to stop other programs from being installed!

Is any or all of this possible - if so, how can I do this?
