how to disable the autorun of portable hard disk when connected?

I have a portable hard disk with 2 partition. every time I connect to windows, 2 auto run windows will pop up and ask me what to do.

how to disable it?

G’day,

Disabling autorun on Windows peripherals (CDROMs, DVDs, external hard drives) requires editing the registry.

If you are running XP Pro, you can do it easily through GPEDIT.MSC.

If you are running XP Home, the easiest way is by using TweakUI from Microsoft. There is a guide to do it using TweakUI at http://www.pcdoctor-guide.com/wordpress/?page_id=1546. Using TweakUI has the advantage that you can turn the feature on or off for individual drives.

Hope this helps,
