When inserting a blank CD/DVD does Vista make any record (e.g. in registry?) that it happened? If one inserted 3 CDs/DVDs, one by one, on the assumption that Vista creates these records, would there be one or three records (one - if records are overwritten)?

This question came from our site for information security professionals.

  • Why do you keep asking the same question? Please look in the event log. – DavidPostill Sep 8 '15 at 15:14
  • The question is not the same... BTW - Event Log, but which section and what event ID? – TheFruiter Sep 9 '15 at 9:35
  • Sigh. Look in the event logs to see if there is an event created. Look in the registry to see if there is an entry created. ProcessMonitor will monitor for registry changes. – DavidPostill Sep 9 '15 at 9:40
  • Answering this question would also be very useful: How many discs, in general, a given Windows Vista user has burnt? I'm thinking about a number which shows a number of discs a user has burnt on his account since the date that account was created. – TheFruiter Sep 9 '15 at 9:40
  • @DavidPostill - OK, I'll check these things. In case of not finding any answers I'll update my post. – TheFruiter Sep 9 '15 at 9:43

It logs hardware actions, for example it logs when you open the lid. It doesn't log whether you put in a blank or whatever CD. After you put in a CD it also logs u closed the lid.

  • Do you mean Event Log/ Hardware Events? – TheFruiter Sep 10 '15 at 13:58
