Hi all

Thanks

You could create a file access control rule denying file writes to the @removable location, which will include all removable drives (usb/firewire/flash and so on), i believe there is a more specifice @cdrom location as well, which is only the optical drives in a host.

Yeap, I created a rule, it works for USB, but it does not work for the block burning CD.

Re: CSA block burn on CD

Hmm, what are you using for a burner program, maybe there are differences in how this works with native windows cd burner vs. nero and others.

I try use Win burning and Nero, but my policy doesn't work :(

may be the some default policy action is allow burn CD?

Re: CSA block burn on CD

I doubt it, but you try to define exactly the application you are using and only deny that, should be more specific than any rule allowing it, just to test that.

I too have not been able to make this rule work. I believe it's the way Nero writes to a CD. It does not go through the OS, but rather directly writes to the CD, therefore, CSA does not see it and cannot block this activity.
