You will never succeed to that and also you are not able to make these names too. con nul lpt1 lpt2 lpt3 com1 com2 and com3 . you have prize if you make a mamed them. but you can use this option to lock your cd(s) You can create a folder named con out of windows ans so this folder can not be poened at windows.

'con' is basically system folder which is used by system but you can create it by DOS. To create 'con' folder : md\\.\\drive_name:\con if you cannot delete this folder, ask me i will help you out.
