    Click on the Drive & select properties , the Auto Play tab choose *take no action*

    If you have M$ powertoys you can disable AutoPlay for drives.

    You could also hold the Shift key down while loading the cd to prevent auto-play.

    hi vegas:

    To Disable CD Autoplay in Windows XP Pro

    [1] Start/Run/GPEDIT.MSC
    [2] Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System.
    [3] Locate the entry for Turn Off Autoplay and modify.

    Start/Run/Gpedit.msc/Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System. Check your settings in the right pane, Turn Off Autoplay (double click).

    To Disable CD Autoplay, completely, in Windows XP Home

    Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Then go to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Name: NoDriveTypeAutoRun
    Type: REG_DWORD

    If NoDriveTypeAutoRun does not exist, create it and set its value to 145 (decimal).

    Or...

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=dword:0x000000FF

    Start/Run/Regedit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdrom
    AutoRun = 0

    Auto-Play: Enable

    Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services/Shell Hardware Detection/Return this service to Automatic.

    Start/Run/Regedit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet\Services\Cdrom. AutoRun = 1
