Removing autoplay when connecting external hd

Whenever I connect my usb external hd, the autoplay scans through every file (mainly audio) which is an inconvenience to say the least, especially with over 100gb of files.

How can I turn it off?

Thx

My Computer -> Right-click the drive -> Properties -> Autoplay-tab -> Set action to 'do nothing' for each of the file types.
