Is there any way to disable Vista from running the DVD drive after clicking My Computer, exploring files, etc?

You know the one - Click on my computer - entire system must freeze and wait for CD/DVD Drive to spin to get drive icon/contents before the user can proceed :sleepy:-zzz

Thanks Yawl.

This was the same in Windows 2000 pro, back in time I modified a setting in the registry. It did modified it to check every 15minutes for the devices(FD,HD,CD) disabling the automatic setting to do so on access of explorer. I will search for this on my Vista when I have some spare time left.

Thanks for that, I suspected it was in the Registry Jungle somewhere alright....

although you should be able to correct this in the register, it is a problem that should not be.

I mean, how many of us use Vista x64 and how many have/had that problem?

Strange if you ask me.
