it assumes too much that you don't know how to get to your media, or other
I seem to have the opposite problem, if I could disable that forever, it
would be nice.

maybe autorun is more generally disactivated ?
some cd-recorder-software do deativate autorun, cuz it may lead to problems.
you may try to install TweakUI. That tool is able to show you the details.
It's part of the Windows PowerToys.
Good luck, Manuel
