I set Banshee up as the default app to launch when I plug in my Android device, but have changed my mind. I'd prefer that Ubuntu simply mount it as a drive and leave the rest to me.

How would I go about changing this behavior?

You could try changing the default behaviour for plugged in devices in Nautilus settings (the tab is called Devices I believe).

Like "Insert Audio CD" --> "open player" etc

I found the preference under /apps/nautilus/preferences with key name media_autorun_x_content_start_app. I was that what you were referring to? Editing it to remove the audio player from the list seemed to do the trick. Thanks! – Michael Moussa Aug 6 '11 at 5:34
kind of - I actually meant in Nautilus/Settings Menu. But it's the same – marto Aug 6 '11 at 6:56
