Blocking "Some" DVD Drives

We are currently using epo/DLP quite successfully to block/allow USB certain storage devices.

Is there a way to block certain DVD/CD drives? i.e. we want to allow authorised people to use their drives, but not others.

From the information that pops up in DLP Monitor, there doesn't seem to be a way to distinguish one drive from another (of the same model/type) - there is no unique id.

Can anyone point us in the right direction?

Re: Blocking "Some" DVD Drives

Just set your block rule to include everyone and exclude the authorized users or groups.  Then create a new rule to monitor only and include your authorized users.
