Hi,

I need to copy a lot of cds and lately the amount of BURN errors i get from autoruns are driving me up the wall. I now have a nice pile of useless coffee coasters!:rolleyes:

Could anyone tell me how to set the CD drive not to autorun?
Please

Thanx

In Windows XP:

start -> run: gpedit.msc

Administrative Templates - System - Turn off Autoplay

I have a few Coasters you could have if you wish! They also work great for Frisbee's!
