    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
    thecaravanman:rolleyes:

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