Windows 7: How to disable auto eject when no CD found in explorer?

How to disable auto eject when no CD found in explorer?

In explorer, if you click your DVD drive and there's no cd in it, it gives you some "insert a disc" message and auto ejects.

I find that extremely annoying because I will sometimes misclick the DVD drive and it pops up when I don't want it to. I'm not dumb enough to willingly click on an empty DVD drive, I will open it up myself before doing that.

How do I disable autoeject?

I think I might have a registry script. I know there is one for hiding the CD -ROM drive, but I;m not sure about ejecting

Give me a moment

Sorry,. this is all I found:
NoAddFromCDorFloppy - Hide "Add a program from CD-ROM or disk" option

Not sure if "focus" is the right term here, but anyway. I use "list" view almost exclusively so this may not be an issue with other views.
