How to stop nautilus from automatically opening when mounting a CD?

I have a hunch this question is going to have an answer that was staring me right in the face, but I can't seem to find it.

When I mount a CD (from the command line) and am running a GUI, nautilus will automatically open a window and attempt to display the contents of the CD. If the user running the GUI doesn't have read permissions on the mount point, it will still open a window and just not display the contents of the CD.

Needless to say, this is annoying. How do I stop it (without uninstalling nautilus)?

Not sure about Slack - but in RedHat

Preferences -> CD Properties

This brings up a dialogue. Just uncheck the "open file manager box".

I don't have "CD Properties" under preferences, I just have "Beginner" "Intermediate" "Advanced" and "Edit Preferences". Nothing under "Edit Preferences" says anything about CD properties (I have been through the entire "Edit Preferences" thing several times and I can't find anything about CDs or automatically opening.)
