FYI: The "copy protection" of Viper Racing is pretty primitive: The game tries
to read the UPC/EAN code from the CD TOC* and compares it to the correct value.

There is no SafeDisc/SecuROM etc. involved, but the game has to use some low
level functions (maybe for CD Audio, maybe ASPI) to get to the information it
is looking for.

*) The TOC lists the tracks on a Compact Disc, it has nothing do to with an ISO
file system and its directories.
