changing default action for kicker media applet

Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I can't seem to find where to change the default action that the Media applet in kicker takes when I insert new media. I want to change it so that it doesn't try to play cd's in amarok when I put one in. At this point, the only time I insert an audio cd is to rip it, so I don't want it interrupting the music I'm already playing.

It let's you set it once, but I don't see how to change it. Any ideas?

If you have any music on your computer that is in the same format as on the cd, you could try right clicking on that and changing how that opens. That should change how everything with that file extension opens.

Thanks for the idea, but it's not file formats that I'm dealing with. The problem is changing the auto-load action the kicker media applet takes when an audio cd is inserted.
