Every time i turn on my external hard drive it scans the whole drive before opening,

click here

It says autoplay in the box but is there a way to set it so it doesn't scan through my whole drive before opening the drive?

Thanks to you both, problem solved.

I used Skidzys suggestion as although i have tweakui installed i couldnt be bothered to load it up.

Anyway it worked a treat so now all i have to do is click the link i have on my dock to load my external drive.

click here
