I want to write archive some stuff on CDs using my Lacie firewire CD-R. Is there any way I can burn the CD so that later when anyone trys to look at what is on the CD they have to enter a password for it to open u to all the content?

On the same grounds, is there a way I can Passowrd Protect entire folders on my desktop and harddrive? I know I can encrypt a single file ONE AT A TIME so that you have to have the password to open the file - but I would like to password protect entire folders full of files?

    Using /Applications/Utilities/, create an encrypted disk image,
    then burn that disk image to a CD.
