Hi,
Disable CD Burning

If XP Pro or Home, edit the registry...

Disable CD Burning

Start | Run | Type: regedit | Click OK |
Navigate to >>>
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\
Policies\Explorer
Value Name: NoCDBurning
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: 0 or 1
0 = Allow CDR
1 = Disable CDR
Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called 'NoCDBurning'
and edit the value according to the settings above.

If XP Pro only, use Group Policy.
Start | Run | Type: gpedit.msc | Click OK

Local Computer Policy\User Configuration\Administrative Templates\
Windows Components\Windows Explorer\
Remove CD Burning features

Windows Explorer allows you to create and modify re-writable CDs if you have
a CD writer connected to your PC.

If you enable this setting, all features in the Windows Explorer that allow
you to use your CD writer are removed.

If you disable or do not configure this setting, users are able to use the
Windows Explorer CD burning features.

Note: This setting does not prevent users from using third-party
applications to create or modify CDs using a CD writer.
