yet another solution:  You can download TweakUI from Microsoft Here:

and disable auto run by drive.  You will also find some other useful things you can do with this utility.

When the window pops up asking you what action to take, choose "Take No Action", and click the checkbox on the bottom.

Hi javolec!
You may want to disable it by opening My Computer--> and right-click the CD-Drive icon. Click Properties, and then the Autorun tab (as far as i can remember) Click Take no Action for every file case (i.e. Pictures, Video, etc)

Regards,

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is to:
