The improved Disk Burn function in Windows 7 allows you to burn files to a disk on the fly, and it doesn’t close the session until you eject the disk. Which is a great tool to use if you continuously want to save backups of your files and documents.
There might, however, be some reasons to shut this feature off. Like, when my kids discovered the burn to disk feature, they tried to “make movies” by placing tons of YouTube links on the disk and burn them. Suddenly my stash of 50 DVD’s were gone. Filled with nothing useful what so ever.
Therefor, I needed a way to disable the Burn To Disk Function in my Windows 7. Now This may also work in Vista, tho I haven’t tested it.
- Click the Start-Button, and type:
gpedit.msc, in the Search Field
- In the Left Pane, Locate the following Folder:
Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components > Windows Explorer
- In the Right pane, scroll down until you find: Remove CD Burning Features and Double-Click it.
- In the Options Window, Click on Enabled, then Click OK
If you want to Enable the Burn Function again, follow the above steps, and choose Disabled.
