How can I enable a user on my network to  be able to burn CD's without giving them Adminn Rights?

I Have heard that there is a local setting in group policy that will enable this?

Does anyone know?

Has anyone ran into the same situation before?

Thanks,
USKOR

Nero 6.0 gives you the ability to assign CD burning rights to computer users. By default only computer Administrators have the previllage to burn a CD, but you can change it as you like.
Wish I can help

I am talking about burning from the operating system as well as 3rd party such as Nero.

I am trying to establish a domain policy that I can assign to specific users giving them the ablility of burning cd's with or without 3rd party software.

Client OS are 2000 and XP.

Like huji already said, when you install Nero, there is a patch for giving rights to ordinary computer users, because in 2000/XP, normally only the people with admin rights can use the burning software. So, with Nero it is possible.

I am still looking for a Group policy that will allow users, specific users to be able to burn CD's. I am trying to avoid touching each machine.

The group policy option to configure:

Computer Configuration|Windows Settings|Security Settings|Local Policies|Security Options:
Devices: Allowed to format and eject removable media

On a client machine, this defaults to "administrators".  You can set it to "Administrators and Power Users" or "Administrators and Interactive Users".  To make all users able to burn CDs, use the latter.  For specific users, use the former and add those specific accounts to Power Users on the machines on which you wish to grant burning rights.

Hope this helps,
