Limited User Accounts

  nivekh 13:36 09 Sep 2007

I often have problems with limited user accounts. The latest problem is copying files to CD. My children select the files, click on "write these files to CD", but get a message saying "please insert CD into drive" even when a writeable CD is inserted.
Also, if they insert any CD into the drive it can't "see" the files already on the disc.
I have no such problems as Administrator.
Is this just a configuration/settings issue?

Is there a facility to `block` access to the DVD/CD drive on this laptop? You should be able to find out by reading the manual that came with it - probably installed as a .pdf.

I'll have a look.
What would be the purpose of such a setting?

To control the ability of users to either add to or download from the data on the PC.
