Turning of Auto Insert on Audio CDs

I'm using Tweakui from the Win98 CD and have tried repeatedly to uncheck "Play Audio CDs automatically" to no avail. Every time I restart Windows it's checked again and I've tried having "Auto Insert notification" in the Properties of both my CD ROMs in the Device Manager both checked and unchecked. Data CDs remain unchecked all the time as desired in Tweakui. Why is this happening for Audio CDs when I want to have the notification turned off for them as well but it refuses to stay that way?

Do a search for NOTIFICATION in your registry. AUTOINSERTNOTIFICATION will probably work also. A 00 means OFF and a 01 means ON. Change the registry itself.

After ensuring the AutoInsertNotification was turned off in the registry for both my HP CD-Writer 7200i and the Creative Labs 32x, I restarted, only to see that Tweakui turned back on "Play Audio CDs automatically" after I explicitly turned it off before restarting. The saving grace of this is that the registry appears to be the dominant factor in that CDs no longer start playing when inserted in either drive. However, double-clicking the HP CD in My Computer opens up a list of track "files", as expected, but starts playing the CD when it's in the Creative. Maybe this is because of the Creative drive itself (a hardware thing that can't be turned off in software because the HP is different) or something obscure in Tweakui (maybe a bug). Any other thoughts?

Some CD recording software makes changes with respect to auto-insert notification.
You might try un-installing, and then re-installing yours.

See if you can download Winhacker from www.winhacker.com or www.wedgesoftware.com. This program does similar thing like TweakUI and might be enough the solve the problem.
