I set the dword value "Autorun" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\cdrom\Parameters to 0. After reboot, my DVD drive is disabled and in device manager it says "The driver cannot start".
I tried it on several computers, same everywhere. Isn't it stupid that it checks the value, but can work with only one possible parameter?
I want this so badly to work (disable CDROM autoplay) I can taste it. The reason is it finally calms my HDD light on the case down. Then I can work on any other reasons for blinking. Is it possible?
* Edit: changed the word "Autorun" to "Autoplay"
