Hello,

if I have iTunes or other Media Software running, and a new CD/DVD is inserted, the software asks  me to rip the CD/DVD. Where I can disable this notifications in Windows7?

Go to the start menu, then control panel, then auto play and select blank cd or dvd and from the drop down menu select take no action. If that doesnt solve the problem i need to know what "new cd/dvd" means like a blank disc or an audio cd? and also what cd burner software you have like Roxio or whatever it may be.

An easier option would be to disable the AutoRun function. So, when CD/DVD media is inserted no prompt is displayed. NOTE: this, also, disables prompts for all removable devices, such as USB sticks.

Here it is:

1. Goto Start, enter Gpedit.msc & press Enter key.
2. Click Allow button, if you get any prompt window.
3. Goto Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates
4. Now navigate to Windows Components & then Autoplay Policies.
5. Double click ‘Turn Off AutoPlay’ in detailed settings pane.
5. Click enabled option & select ‘all drives’ from drop down box.
7. Click Apply, OK. Settings should be effective on system restart or reboot.

Best luck.Cheers, dom

Have to select some answer. This was the best one but not the one I expected.
