    To disable the CD autoplay feature, use the following Windows XP registry hack:

    Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Key: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer
    Name: NoDriveTypeAutoRun
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Value: 181 hex 0x0b5

    Or

    Registry Settings
    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom]
    Value Name: Autorun
    Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value Data: (0=disable, 1=enable)

    Thanks Khayman,

    Will this work for all my optical drives? I have two of them.


    Thanks again,

    Hi Khayman,
