I am using Windows Media Player 7.1. When I insert a CD the player opens and the CD starts playing.
How do I turn off this function - so that inserting a CD does not open Windows Media Player?

go to my computer, right click on the drive you are using, click properties,autoplay and then you have a list of music,pics,etc.click 'take no action' on music cds and whatever else you dont want to autoplay..

Thanks Factor. But no joy. When I go to My Computer<R click on drive D<Properties I get two tabs, General and Volume. No sign of Autoplay. Can you help further?

Go toHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\
Services\Cdrom\ and set the default to 0.

If that doesn't work you can hold "Shift" down while inserting the cd until we can find something else.
