Encrypting Data

Hi there!

I'm searching for an efficient method to encrypt a DVD so that the person who receives it would simply insert the password I previously set and visualize its contents.

So far, I tried Truecrypt's "Traveler Disk" solution, without success...
Even when I set it up to automatically open, it doesn't. I'm trying it on Windows, because that's the OS the receiver will use.

Do you have a better idea? Every tip is welcome!

Thanks in advance.

You could try encrypting data with openssl,
openssl enc -aes-256-cbc -salt -in file.txt \
-out file.enc -pass pass:mySillyPassword
