Well, Plextor has a propitiatory technology that only works with Plextor drives... Useless if you ask me... And I think RICOH was developping something as well.  Your best bet is to put a Truecrypt volume on the CD/DVD and have an autorun file trigger a batch to mount it as another drive letter and prompt for a password.

TrueCrypt is open source... Google away.

I am confused, all I need is a program that will allow me to password protect a data disc once its made.
Can nero or any other program do this.

thanks

No.  Like I said, there is TrueCrypt... You can ZIP/RAR/7z Password protect the data in a file, or buy a Plextor drive and exchange the data with a password with other Plextor owners.  Those are your options today... I have not researched the Ricoh solution, but it is about as promising as the Plextor solution... need an optical drive that can handle it.  TrueCrypt is the best option right now, but it requires some reading and the users of the disc need admin rights... And the disc could only be accessed on Windows XP/2000 or Linux based machines today... Mac support is coming to TrueCrypt in the future.

Password protected zip file containing the contents of what you may want on the CD...  You're not going to be able to encrypt the disc in a way like I think you are looking to do.
