newb question of the day. Windows Media Player

Ok, so i run Windows Media Player all day. the times i go to put in a disc to burn or erase or whatever the case may be Media Player stops and a pop-up will display the contents of the disc. Is there anyway to turn this off so this doesnt happen. Ive gone through the drive settings and that didnt do it. I went through the Media Player as well and nothing there either.

Could i be missing something? Your help is appreciated. thank you

there should be a small check box in the window that pops up saying something to the effect of "do this everytime this media is inserted"
If you tick that box it should stop requesting input from you.
