Disabling Auto Run when CD is inserted?

When i put a CD in if its all MP3 or software CD e.g Windows 98 they automatically run. How can i disable this so the contents of the CD can only be accessed when i want?

Go into Device Manager; CDROM; highlight the device an select Properties; Settings tab and de-select "Auto Insert Notification". Click OK.

As you do not say what OS. Just hold the shift key down when you put the disc in until light stops flashing on drive
