Windows 7: How can I disable WMP DVD Autoplay in Win 7?

How can I disable WMP DVD Autoplay in Win 7?

It's getting really annoying and I cannot see any kind of setting for it.
I googled this and got a whole slew of useless advice, like using the DVD drive's context menu, a nonexistent "Hardware and Audio" setting in the control panel or nonexistent registry entries under Current User/Software/Microsoft/Media Player/Preferences/Autoplay.

Isn't there a way to keep media player from annoying me short of uninstalling it?

Hi Megidolaon. You could try playing with the settings in this control panel dialogue...

I still don't have Hardware and Audio.
Apparently it's not in Windows 7 Home Premium. WTF?
But thanks, I found it under Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Autoplay.
