Disable Windows Vista’s Built-in CD/DVD Burning Features

The vast majority of people I know use a software like Nero to handle all their CD/DVD burning even though Windows Vista has built-in support for burning. So how do you get rid of the built-in Windows Vista burning features since you don’t need them?

There’s a simple registry tweak that can disable the built-in burning features in Explorer, most notably the Burn button on the toolbar that you never ever use.

Notice the button is gone after applying the registry hack:

Manual Registry Hack

Open regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
\Policies\Explorer

On the right-hand pane create a new 32-bit DWORD value with these properties:

  • Name: NoCDBurning
  • Value: 1

You’ll have to logout and back in to see the changes. To remove, just delete the key or change the value to 0.
