Just follow the below steps:
  • Right-click on the drive icon for your CD drive, CD recorder, or DVD drive, and select "Properties".
  • Choose the AutoPlay tab, and choose the desired action for each type of CD. For example, choose Music CD, then click Select an action to perform, then select Take no action.
