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.

In the subject you have said "stop auto insert " and in the main question it is " turn on auto insert" ?

Am i missing something here ?

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.
