How to Password Protect CD/DVD?

Introduction:

CD/DVD came into existence almost two decades ago. They were launched for different categories such as songs, videos, documents etc. In the beginning, there was no such idea of putting a password on a drive, as there was not any need of it. Now, there exists the option of burning files to the CDs and DVDs quickly. Since what you burn to your CD must be of equal importance, password protection to such disks seems to be an important decision for today. However, know that you cannot burn data in its simplest form to CDs rather you need to convert store them in portable lockers which are eligible to be transferred to the disks easily.
