I have a desktop 40 gig HDD, the problem is that every now and then the autoplay kicks in and the moving torch is searching what to open a file with ( on this HDD I have music files/ textfiles in fact everything that makes computing interesting, this is all very well, but I might be working on another harddrive, I have other harddrives linked to my computer 4 infact and none of the others do this. The autoplay box offering me different applications to open various files..........I highlight "Take no Action" click apply.........and woila 5 minutes later autoplays moving torch is at it again totally ignoring my command, is their anybody out there who could help solve this annoying nuisance......Your input gratefully excepted.

Have you searched your drive to see if there are any AUTORUN.INF or AUTORUN.* files as if they exist this could be causing what you described.
