Can't burn a CD/DVD with Nero from a Remote Desktop session


When connecting with a remote desktop connection to machine running Windows Vista, any attempt to burn a CD/DVD with Nero gives the following error message:
"If you are running Nero burning software via Windows Remote Login, you might not be able to access your drives for burning. This is a security restriction from Windows".


1) Start gpedit.msc
2) Go to Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> System --> Removable Storage Access
3) Change "All Removable Storage: Allow direct access in remote sessions" to Enable.

Affected software:

Microsoft Windows 10
Microsoft Windows 7
Microsoft Windows Vista
Nero 7
