To burn a CD or DVD over Remote Desktop Connection in Windows Vista, you need to make sure that the following Group Policy setting is enabled: All Removable Storage: Allow direct access in remote sessions.
Group Policy is available on Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions. To find and enable the setting in Group Policy Object Editor, do the following steps on the remote computer that you're connecting to. The following steps and procedures are intended for IT pros. To learn more about Group Policy management and making changes, go to Windows Help online, and search for Group Policy management.

To enable direct access to removable storage in remote sessions
1. To open Group Policy Object Editor, click the Start button Picture of the Start button, type gpedit.msc in the Search box, and then click gpedit.msc in the list of search results.
2. In Group Policy Object Editor, expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand System, and then click Removable Storage Access.
3. Double-click the following setting: All Removable Storage: Allow direct access in remote sessions.
4. In the All Removable Storage: Allow direct access in remote sessions dialog box, click Enabled, and then click OK. Close Group Policy Object Editor.
5. To apply the updates to Group Policy, click the Start button Picture of the Start button, type Command Prompt in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt in the search results, and then click Run as administrator.
