I belive the title explains it.

In win9x windows architecture it was easy, but I can't find an option to turn of CD-ROM auto insert notification in Win2000.

To disable AIN on Win2k, Click the Start button followed by selecting "Run".  Type in "gpedit.msc" and click OK.  Click and expand "Computer Configuration", followed by "Administrative Template", followed by "System".  Double click "Disable Autoplay" and then select "Enable" followed by clicking "OK".

You can also hold down SHIFT to bypass the automatic feature on a case-by-case basis...

Yet another possibility: with TweakUI, you can differentiate between data CDs and music CDs (in the "Paranoia" tab) and whether you want the autostart or not; this needs the "Auto insert notification enabled", though. For the installation, unpack the file, right-click the .inf file and choose "install".

Your sollution didn't work. Maybe I shoud have restarted the system for changes to take effect.
I have changed that key, but nothing happened. CD's just kept auto starting when inserted.
