In system preferences> CDs & DVDs I have everything set to ignore. Yet iTunes still opens every time I put in an audio CD - is there a way to turn this off?

As a follow up in iTunes > Preferences > General > When You Insert A CD: I have the following options

  • Show CD (The selected option)
  • Begin Playing
  • Ask To Import CD
  • Import CD
  • Import CD and Eject

There is no ignore option within iTunes - is there some other way to disable iTunes opening?

In iTunes you can go to preferences > General > you can choose among:

– display
– play
– import
– import and eject

just choose display. It seems that you can't get rid of this trouble.
