    I have managed to find an update for my CR-RW, however it fails every time saying that the auto-insert is still on.

    The tweaks section told me to download TweakIU and disable it there but it still complains.....

    Is there a registry setting anyone knows about that I can alter?

    Thank, it would be a great help!

    Found this

    Is this what you are after:

    "Turn Off Autoplay For CDs

    Click Start , click Run , type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
    Locate and click the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom
    -To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero).
    -To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1.
    Restart your computer.
    (NOTE : This method disables automatically running CD-ROMs.
    If you want to disable automatically running CD-ROMs depending on the CD-ROM that you insert in the CD-ROM drive, you can press and hold down one of the SHIFT key while you insert the CD-ROM."
