Disable Built-in CD Burning Capability?

    I had a tweak once that let you kill the built-in burner function in XP, but seem to have lost it. I can't seem to find a mention of it here in NTFS either.

    Can someone help me out here?

    Thanks

    disable "IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service" in Administrative Tools>Services. It's also good to disable this if you use Nero (it's a Roxio based product) or so I hear.

    Thanks,

    I was trying to use NERO and it just wouldn't work. Perhaps now I'll have some joy

    Can't you just right click on the burner drive letter/properties/recording & turn it off there?
