Dear Sir,
I want to know whether is it possible to monitor Read/Write activity of CD
by writing a kind of filter driver? Like File system filter driver is there
to monitor Read/Write of file activities.Similar thing i want to do for
CD-ROM also.

Plz reply.

Dear Sir,
My objective is to prevent user to burn certain files into CD .For this I
need to find out the way of monitoring CD burn.I have written file system
filter driver.But writes/burns to CD are not passing through file system
filter driver.

I also found from the net that CD burn happens directly through the CD ROM
disk driver instead of passing through file system. Is this true? If yes
what is the way to intercept CD burns/writes.

Basically i want to know is there any way to get hold of "Write" request
during CD burn so that I can prevent user to burn certain files into CD ?
