Hi,

is there a way to disable cdrw in XP?
Got an cdrw in a laptop, and want this to only be used as a cdrom.
No cdrw osftware is installed.
It's because of an security issue.

Start>Run>regedit.
Look for the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer

Create a new DWORD value under the key, name it "NoCDBurning" (without quotes), and set its value to 1.

You might need to restart once for the changes to take effect.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
