In that case try the following:

 

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows
Explorer\Remove CD Burning Features

I think in my case that might actually work as installing 3rd party apps
like Nero and Roxio are prevented because of reduced user permissions.

That just disables burning using Windows Explorer and there is actually
an Admin Template setting for that I think.

What about disabling the IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service? Could I add that
to my gpo that manages windows services? Seems like that might be a
winner.

Jonathan-

If you have Vista clients then Vista GP supports this. If not, then
Group Policy Preferences supports device restrictions but you can either
only enable or disable a given device class-there is no granularity to
allow reads but not writes, as there is in Vista.

Is there a key that explicitly changes CD-Rom drives to read only? I
have a custom ADM that disables writing to removable media but USB keys
are still permitted. That solution won't work. I also have a custom ADM
that disables the cdrom.sys driver. Reading from CD-Rom drives is still
kosher as well, so that doesn't work. 

 

Any suggestions?
