CD/DVD read-only rule

Hi all,


I have browsed the DLP 9.1 docs but could not find an answer for that.


I am trying to setup a rule to make CD/DVD RW drive read-only, so users cannot add data and burn a CD/DVD.


I have so far done the following:


1) Created Removable Storage Device Definition

     CD/DVD drives

     File system: CDFS + UDFS


2) Created a Device Rule

     Notify User



3) Deployed to a single user


I am still able to burn data to a CD-R using WindowsXP built-in software and imgburn.


What am I missing?


Comments/suggestions are much appreciated

    That is OK. I done like yours.


    Now users can read but can't write data to CD/DVD.

    Use only one condition for your RSD definition: CD/DVD drives. Remove the other one based on File System.

    Ensure that the rule applied to this user shows up in ePO under System Tree -> <Test Computer> -> System Properties -> Products -> Data Loss Prevention

    Confirm that the machine was rebooted after the Agent was installed, etc. Basic troubleshooting.
