Is there a policy in a Windows 2000 Server environment and XP laptops using
Active Directory to prevent users from burning files onto the CDR but still
allow access to the drive to read CD's

Thanks

Windows doesn't copy downloads directly to a CD.
You can download to your hard drive first, and then copy to a CD.

I think that's what he wants to prevent.

I missed the intent,
My guess would be to install a read only CD driver.

You can disable the IMAPI CD Burning Service and they won't be able to write
to CD's. You just need to be able to prevent them from turning this service
back on. I believe you can also disable CD writing using the group policy
editor (XP Pro only)
