    Autoplay settings

    long story short l recently restored my laptop, certain settings have reverted which is no biggie, but l burn the occasional disk and for the life of me l cannot remember where the settings for DVD/CD autoplay were as l want to stop windows from automatically trying to use the inbuilt windows burning utility and use my own. but l cannot seem to find any settings that related to what windows will do when l insert a disk, just two options which dont give me much control over the actions when l insert media.

    thanks, should have searched a bit harder, but its kinda annoying that the settings are so buried and not with other autoplay options.

    even the burning popup dialogue didnt offer me a link to autoplay settings, in fact it had slipped my mind that it was autoplay originally lol.. appreciate the help.
