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.

Subject: [gptalk] CD-Rom Write Disable


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?
