Disable AutoPlay of Blank CD or DVD media

Ubuntu will automatically launch a CD burning tool when you insert a blank data cd or dvd. This can sometimes interfere with something else you are doing right at that moment.

To disable this, navigate to System \ Preferences \ Removable Drives and Media:

Uncheck the box, and you will no longer autoplay blank discs.
