How do I stop my PC from autoplaying media files present on my SD card on my Android Phone? Whenever my USB linkage cord between my PC and my phone is wobbled just a little bit my Ubuntu 12.10 tries to play all the files on my SD card (like audio and picture files) how do I stop this?
Click on power button
Click on system settings
Click on details
Click on Removable Media; then you could;
Maybe using a newer/different cable to try and stop the problem of device/s being detected but then disconnecting and reconnecting if moved at all.
Open up System Settings and click "Details". Under removable media set the drop down menus under music player and photos to "Do nothing."
It looks like when the cable is wiggled, it is re-detected. How about just disabling autoplay?
