Implementing IT asset management best practices in your organization includes building complete and detailed hardware configuration charts. Optical disk drives are frequently overlooked and excluded from the hardware inventory since they aren’t necessarily common these days. This recklessness eventually leads to compatibility issues and exposes the organization’s assets to risks such as the ability to run a blocklisted program right from a CD or DVD. Action1 hardware inventory tool fills this gap. The solution collects information about CD, DVD and other optical disk drives from all your managed workstations and servers. The “CD/DVD Drives” report lists all optical drives, with the serial number and media each device supports. Leverage this information when planning hardware upgrades or executing security controls in your IT system.

Frequently Asked Questions



1. How to detect CD/DVD drives on remote computers?
You can use psexec to run remote commands and discover CD/DVD drives on remote computers. Alternatively, consider using the Action1 hardware management tool to locate CD/DVD and other optical drives on your remote endpoints.

2. How to fix the issue when a CD/DVD is not recognized on Windows laptops?
If Windows fails to run the CD/DVD once it is ejected, try restarting the system. Windows will attempt to locate its components. Then, check the ‘Device Manager’ to make sure the DVD or CD drive is visible in the system. Also, consider reinstalling the drive.

3. How can I distribute software without CDs/DVDs?
Nowadays, most distributives are available online in public resources, thus you don’t need to keep a CD/DVD. If your company has proprietary software, you can upload the executable to your private Action1 App Store and orchestrate software deployments from there.

4. Should I block a CD/DVD drive?
It depends on your company’s security policies, software distribution workflows, and your domain. In most cases, you can toss the optical drives and leverage cloud-based storage solutions instead.
