    You can't, not without special hardware.

    The normal method used to be:
    1. Use special HW to damage a specific sector on the disc.
    2. Your program would attempt to access that when starting. If it couldn't, then it was an authentic disc.
    3. If it was copied, the bad sector wouldn't be.

    that's correct. You cannot do it without hardware, but you can however, encrypt the data on your disk so that whatever information on there is not readable.
