When a blank media inserted, the burning tool automatically started. Is there a way to disable that feature?


In Nautilus under Edit > Preferences > Media:

alt text

  • Doesn't seem to be valid anymore for Ubuntu 11 – Kirby Jan 11 '13 at 4:54

System > Preferences > Preferred Applications

On the media tab, below Other Media, select blank CD disk and change action to Do Nothing or Ask what do do as you prefer. Do the same for the other blank media types.

  • I knew that, but on my 10.04 in Preferred applications there is no such a tab... Hey anyway thank you for the reply. – AndyB Oct 22 '10 at 13:10
  • In 12.04 it is no longer accessed from Nautilus! It has moved to Unity Dash -> System Preferences -> System -> Details -> Removable Media – Jesse the Wind Wanderer Jul 13 '13 at 10:35
