Actually, Cobra, it's because DVD's still cost more then CD's to manufacture. When done in [i]bulk[/i] a CD cost as little as .10-.25 cents each, DVD's are over $1-$5 each. Even with a game on 3 CD's it's still cheaper then a DVD. Also, some of the copy protection methods used on CD's can easily be ported to DVD's or new protection methods can be created. Cost is the reason, nothing more.

QWERTY do you know how Scurrom 4xx works becus if you put it on a 4.7Gb dvd you will have about 2Gb space for the app or the movie & then the movie will not play on a dvd player

Cobra, do you? Securom on a DVD would not take 2.7gigs of space. Even on a CD it does not take much space away from the CD itself. That's the beauty of it, the copy protection is transparent to the drive. Get your facts straight.

And I never said DVD's would use exactly the same copy protection schemes as used on CD's. I simply implied that many of the same copy protection ideas can be ported and used on DVD's. For you to say it can't be done is just shortsighted on your part.
