Exclude DVD installation from AMP

I have a DVD installation disk that is being blocked by AMP.  Any tips on how to exempt this?  I realize that I can exempt the drive, but not I am not sure if all PCs have the same drive number for the DVD / CD drive.

Hmm, excluding the DVD drive was going to be my first recommendation :)

What exactly is being blocked? Is it a particular .exe/application? If yes, can you create a custom whitelist for it?

Thank you for rating helpful posts! 

I considered white listing the .exe file only, but then decided to do the whole DVD drive as they use a lot of custom programs, and could become a management nightmare if we were to white list on a per file / application basis.

Thanks for the feed back :-)

Yeah, I know what you mean. Excluding the whole DVD drive is less secure but also less of a headache when compared to whitelisting/blacklisting apps. Ideally, AMP would if/when malware moves from the DVD to the local file share. 

Also, I really wish the black/whitelisting functionality is improved. For instance, I would like to say that Java (all Java versions and flavors) are not allowed to run on my DCs. Right now, I have to generate a hash for each version and add it to the list. As a result, the list gets out of control and it is a huge administrative overhead.
