Disabling CD burning in Vista Home Basic

Disabling CD burning in Vista Home Basic

Post by Rm9udG » Sat, 24 Nov 2007 17:08:02


We have purchased a Lenovo laptop with built in OS of "Windows Vista Home
Basic". Now, we want to disable the CD burning facility.

There is no gpedit or secpol in "Windows Vista Home Basic"; therefore,
suggest me how to disable the inbuilt CD/DVD burning facility. IMAPI is no
longer working as a service also (therefore I could not disable it in
Services).

I have already uninstalled all the third party CD burning softwares.

Follow the instructions here to chnage the type from recordable to
non-recordable in the registry

note: The drive type value of 3 indicates that the drive is a standard
CD-ROM and is not writable.
