why a cant I open DVD that has been written by nero secure disk without coping whole data ?

I have written my family videos by nero secure disk and encrypted it .but I have two problems with the way secure disk works.
1-the name of the files in dvd are shown in dvd but I wanted to encrypt DVD in a way that no one knows even the name of files and folders
2-when I insert the encrypted DVD .I cant watch my videos directly I have to wait a few minutes and waste some space on my hard drive to copy the encrypted DVD and then watch the videos from hard drive.Is there any way to directly open and watch my files?

    Hi Alex-

    Normally you would view the disc using the Nero SecurDisc Player which is burned on the disc.

    If you password protect the disc, nobody should be able to read the disc, except you and someone that you give the password to. It doesn't prevent copying the disc.
    • thank you so so much for your answer
      i have used nero 2016 version 17.0.5000 and only nero secure disk viewer have been burnt with my files .can I install Nero SecurDisc Player separately ? or it is integrated into nero latest version?
      and what about my first question? doesn't nero secure disk able to hide the name of password protected dvds like winrar .
      thanks again for your help

    In the help files (KnowHow), they call it the Nero SecurDisc Player, even though in v2018 and v2019, the file on the disc is called the Nero SecurDisc Viewer. Sorry about the confusion.

    The thing that bothers me is that I just burned a disc using Secret encryption and, not only are the folder names not encrypted, neither are the file names when I run the disc in Windows Explorer. It never asks for the password and I can open every file. I wonder if that's because I used a RW type disc (I don't work for Nero so I have to provide my own discs).

    I suggest that you go here-

    and submit the contact form.

    Please let me know what they have to say.

  • I find a very useful program that is exactly what I wanted.(Idoo Secure Disc Creator 6.0.0)
    it is very fast,easy to use and works fine on my pc and laptop.I recommend to try it if you are looking for encrypting DVDs.
