    Hello everybody.
    if you want the truth, I got an idea. if I was able to change track info like NWA ( next writable address ), number of sectore and stuffs like that, and erase that data from DVD or change that, I can make DVD seems to be a blank DVD and as you know, that DVD cannot be copied. thus I and only I can access DVD data

    The Lead in Zone takes up 2FFFFh sectors on the disc, the control zone has 16 sectors repeated 192 times. Information regarding the disc would be contained within that zone,
