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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
