    System preferences > CD&DVD > Insert Music CD > Ignore..

    Assuming you are on Mac.

    From what I can recall when I used to have a Windows XP desktop (and the same may apply to newer versions of Windows), you insert the CD, go to My Computer, select Autoplay (or Autoplay options if that's there [which I don't think it is, just guesstimating[). In the AutoPlay window, you are given several options as to what you can do with that CD when you insert it. At the bottom of the list, there should be a 'Ignore'/'Do Nothing' kind of option.

    Only thing is, I'm not sure if that will only apply to the current CD or all CDs in general. Give it a shot ;]

    Click Start, Default Programs, Change Autoplay Settings.

    That was hard.

    It's in Control Panel in Windows. You can disable it. Look somewhere in Power Management. Or look at all the folders that pop out when you open control panel, it's in there.

    Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\AutoPlay believe me this is the answer
    In windows 10 works
    Control Panel > Hardware and sound > autoplay or
    just go to settings and type cd to search field and click first option :)

    Sounds like 5 years later it's already been figured out.

    In iTunes settings, general tab? Or the next tab? I don't remember. But there is an option saying "ask to import CD when inserted". Disable it, and done.

    Thanks. There is nothing like someone who knows what they are talking about to bring a heated conversation to a quick halt.

    That was awful. I sure hope I never have to do THAT again.
    (P.S. - Thanks, it worked.)
