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;
- Check the box to "Never prompt..."
- Set the drop down menus under "music player" and "photos" to "Do nothing."
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.
It looks like when the cable is wiggled, it is re-detected. How about just disabling autoplay?
To disable autoplay:
gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount_open False
To enable autoplay:
gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount_open True
