    Hi,
    When I pop in CD-ROMs in my CD-ROM drive they start automatically.

    How do I prevent this from happening?

    Thanks.

    What OS are you useing, the way to do this on 95/98 differs from the way to do it on XP and 2000.

    On windows95/98 it's done through the CD-roms properties in the device manager. In XP and 2000 you can use tweakui to do it.
