    Stop the "Burn a Disc" dialog from popping up on Blank Disc insertion


    How can I stop this annoying dialog box from opening up every time I insert a blank CD or DVD



    Annoyingly, like many Win 10 dialog boxes, it lacks a "Don't ask me this again" checkbox.

    Turning Autoplay off stops it, but that breaks my setup for other removable media so its not a solution.

    In Autoplay, I have "Blank Disc" set up to "Take No Action" which I I expected to literally mean that, ie. do nothing! However, Win 10 ignores this.

    I was hoping there might be a registry hack that would stop this annoying dialog box from popping up.

    Same place that it has always been under Default Programs for Autoplay settings.

    Well as I said on the second to last line of my post, I have Autoplay set to "Take no Action" for DVD and CD. This should mean that when I insert a disc... nothing should happen.


    ETA: In fact, it doesn't matter what I have Autoplay set to, this dialog still pops up.


    ETA2: I have the same settings on my Laptop (Win 10 64 bit) but this dialog does not pop up

    Hello, smartcooky. You must set the difinative configurations in Control Panel, not the Settings app. Use step two of this tutorial.

    I have done what you are telling me and it doesn't work. I must be stupid so you will have to talk me through it.

    I followed Option 2 and here is what I ended up with...

    It doesn't work!

    I decided start from scratch

    1. "Reset to default" in Autoplay.
    2. Restarted the computer
    3. When restart is completed, insert a Blank DVD

    The dialog box pops up, and furthermore, it does so BEFORE the notification asking me what I want to do with blank discs, i.e. this dialog box doesn't care what my Autoplay settings are!,

    I guess that means it is nothing to do with Autoplay.... something else is happening here.

    That's odd. Try check-marking "Choose what to do with each type of media" and see what happens.

    The optic drive's driver may come into play here as well.

    TBH, I don't use my optic drive that much, so I have mine set to "Take no action", however it is responding to settings I change in CP. I'm sure you know, but keep in mind that the optic drive is considered a removable drive.

    With a blank disk in your drive do you get a desktop.ini file when highlighting the drive?

    That didn't work either.

    When I open the drive...Yes

    Next, I tried starting the Task Manager with a view to watching to see which (if any) process started up when I inserted the disc. The dialog did NOT pop up.... curious.

    So I closed the Task Manager, then ejected and re-inserted the disk... the dialog pops up.

    I repeated the process a couple of times...when the Task manager is off, the dialog pops up, but when its on, the dialog does NOT pop up.

    Then I tried acting on your comment about the optical drive. I went to Device Manager and uninstalled the DVD Rom, then clicked the "Scan for Hardware changes" icon at the top of the window (reinstalling the DVD).

    That fixed that problem... the dialog no longer pops up.

    Must have been a glitch in the Matrix

    Thanks for your help HippsieGypsie
