The Windows-7 Autoplay begins reading from a drive as soon as you dock an USB-STICK (HD) or insert a CD, DVD in the drive. As a result, the setup file of programs for Windows-7 and the music on audio media start immediately to play.

But you can customize Auto-Play setting in Windows-7, disable or enable Autoplay feature for CD-ROM and removable media drives! Or disable Autoplay for all Windows-7 drives.

You can find the Autoplay in Windows-7 control pane, or please start the run dialog in Windows 7 and enter the following command: control /name Microsoft.AutoPlay! (... see Image-1 Arrow-1) After that, the settings for the Auto-playback in Windows 7 will be open.
