How to turn off auto-play?

I listen to alot of music cds on my work computer and many recent ones are "hyper cds" which auto launch when I put them in the CDROM drive. How can I turn off this feature?

I think this is what you're looking for (from the MS site):

disable auto play

You can temporarily disable it by holding down the shift key while the cd is mounting.
