Turn Off the CD-ROM Autorun

Any OS
If you hold down the Shift key when inserting the CD, the autorun is bypassed. (although it's not exactly graceful trying to insert a CD while holding down keys on the keyboard.)

Windows XP

1) Click Start, Run and enter GPEDIT.MSC
2) Go to Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System.
3) Locate the entry for Turn autoplay off and modify it as you desire.

Windows XP

1) Right-click on the drive icon for your CD drive, CD recorder, or DVD drive, and select Properties. 2)Choose the AutoPlay tab, and choose the desired action for each type of CD. For example, choose 3)Music CD, then click Select an action to perform, then select Take no action.
