    My 21 month old daughter loves to press the buttons on my DVD and DVD-RW drives. Luckily she hasn't yet put anything bad in them nor has she broken the tray off, but I'm waiting for that to happen.

    Anyone know of a simple utility that will software lock the tray like the writer apps do during burning. I don't mind right-clicking on the drive letter and selecting "Eject", I just want to disable the Eject button on the front of the drive.

    Thanks,
    Joey

    No utility for that mess unless you own a Apple.

    Never used it but it is free and says it will lock your CD drawers. Has some other neat features.

    Or you could just get a better PC case with a front door which is lockable and covers the drive bays when it is closed...

    I paid just over $100 for mine, shipping included. That may seem like a lot of green just for a case w/o a PSU, but read a few reviews and you'll see why I still regard it as one of the best investments I have ever made.

    pop the face off the drive and snip the backing behind the actual button, or just remove the face of the button.
