Forcing CD/DVD to create a Self Extractor

I'm new to Safeboot and we have just installed Version 5,1,6. I was wondering if there is a way of setting the policy to enforce all cd's/dvd's copying to create a self extractor.
I don not want users to be able to write an unencrypted cd. At the same time the encrypted cd has to be readable by people with a password without safeboot installed .
Hope this makes sense?

not possible I'm afraid due to the way CD's work - they are stream written much like tape, rather than block written like disks and memory cards. What you ask would only be possible using a dedicated cd writing program.

So if we use a dedicated cd-writing software like Roxio, which plays with EEFF/EEPC, will the functionality be possible?? (to write self decrypting DVDs/CD's)

no - CD's dont work like that. They are like tape. You can't run something off them - they are just storage.

You need an application to decrypt an encrypted CD, and you need an application to create an encrypted one in the first place.
