Prevent CDROM devices

JakeAboJakeAbo Member Posts: 3

Hi OSR Experts,

I'm trying to write a driver to prevent CDROM devices (when plugged in) on the OS.
I have started research implement POC of it by writing "Filter driver(?for bus or nobus?)" which implementing "IRP_MJ_PNP" and "IRP_MN_START_DEVICE" and set ACCESS_DENIED for preventing.

I have a few questions:
1. Am I on the right way?
2. Should my filter driver be for bus or nonbus?
3. Any other suggestions
