protecting CD contents - Macromedia Director Lingo

I want to create a front end to a CD that requires a password to access the PDFs contained on the CD. What is the best way to do this so that people cannot just simply open the PDFs in file manager? It's no good using password protection on the PDFs themselves because there are thousands so you'de need to type it in all the time (unfortunately no folder level options). I though perhaps there might be some Xtra like the PDF extra that packs all the PDFs into the projector as apposed to accessing them as external files?...

    Default Re: protecting CD contents

    I haven't tried it with pdf's yet but buddyAPI has a baEncryptFile
    function which *could* be used to make the pdf's unreadable outwith
    director. then it would be fairly easy to set up a password entry
    before the files are decrypted.

    hth,
