Unable to burn CDs on school computer

Question: I am not able to access or use the F drive (CD-R drive) on my classroom computers. What is causing this and how can I bypass this?

IT Guy Says:
Check with your network administrator to see what type of security software is installed on the school computer; it sounds like they have intentionally configured the machines to prohibit use of the CD drive. Some schools to do this to prevent students from burning copies of downloaded MP3 and video files from the Internet. Teachers generally can have different access privileges than students, which should include the ability to burn CDs. Make your case to the network admin. for these computer privileges based on the instructional reasons you want them, and if necessary ask your campus principal to advocate for you with the technology department.
