I have a new Pavilion dv7-6187cl laptop which works great (Win 7 Home) except for this annoying glitch. I want (and have configured) Windows Media Player to rip audio CDs when I mount them. It does that okay, but then PowerDVD starts up and starts playing the CD at the same time, and with both applications reading from different parts of the CD at different times I get this annoying stuttering playback.
Have already tracked-down the checkbox in PowerDVD's settings that causes it to autoplay a disc and unchecked it, but it doesn't seem to care. Very, very annoying. I don't want to uninstall PowerDVD because it surely has other good uses, but I do NOT want it playing my CDs when I mount them.
This question was solved. View Solution.

Go to Control panel and find "Auto Play" (you may have to change to "Icon View" in the upper right hand corner to find it)
In that list find Power DVD10 for playing CD's and click on the drop down box _ choose for it to do nothing and save your choice.
According to your specs. you have a Blu-ray player, so don't uninstall Power DVD10, it's the only thing on your computer that plays Blu-rays. Not sure if Windows Media Player has a Blu-ray player in it.

Excellent, I had the same problem and it was not obvious why it was not stopping - thanks for the answer
Any body else find windows 8 almost unworkable on a PC or laptop ? , The simple things like going to control panel or switching between applications and programs became nightmares of navigation.
