I jumped from Win95 to NT4 and then XP so I missed Win2000. Try going to Windows Explorer (Windows key + E) right click your CD player (D drive?) and choose properties. I think there is a tick box for autoplay there. Let me know how you get on by posting back here.

Nicked this from another website so try this one too if my first post doesn`t work.

To disable AutoPlay: Double-click My Computer. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the File Types tab. In Registered file types, click AudioCD, and then click Advanced. In Actions, click Play, and then click Set Default.

Note: You can temporarily disable AutoPlay by pressing SHIFT while you insert an audio CD. Repeating steps 1 through 4 enables AutoPlay. When Play is displayed in bold, AutoPlay is enabled. When Play is not displayed in bold, AutoPlay is disabled.

Don't know about Windows 2000.
