I want to implement through GPO and if i want to do the same with client policy....then i prefer to go for disable the CD-ROM from BIOS or unplugged it.

Thanks

group policy--> edit--> computer configuration -->windows setting --> security setting -->
local policies --> security options --> device : restrict CD:ROM (PROPERTIES )--> Enable

mmc- -- > file--> aad/remove snap in --> add --> group policy object editor -->close -->
