Trying to set a group policy in AD that will hide the CD drive for Users in AD. I am able to disable the removable storage but they are still visible. How can they be hidden with group policy? Any suggestions?

Thanks. That will disable but the CD/DVD is still visible in 'Computer' folder. Trying to hide it by creating a GPO and editing the Preferences.
