Hello,
I just put a music CD in the drive, a popup window appeared, I only glanced at it and hit ok without thinking about it. It said something like "Rip audio from CD using media player", with a window ticked with something like "make this the default option when putting in a CD"

Now every time when I put the CD in the drive, windows media player starts up and isn't able to rip the songs and freezes - I'm not worried about that - I just want to find the option so that it won't try to automatically start media player and rip it every time I put it in the drive.

Actually this is one of those little problems that has bugged me over the years but I never asked about it: where are the settings to change the 'default options for when you put in a CD/connect something?' If I ever accidentally click that box that says "make this the default option for when you do such and such" I'm always stuck with it because I don't know how to change them.
Thanks.
