stop audio cds autoloading

I am using KDE 3.5 and whenever I put in an audio cd a konqueror window opens and so does KsCD. Konqueror I can handle - how can I stop KsCD opening? I have looked in kcontrol/system settings and I can't find out how to do it (I keep crashing kcontrol when I try as well but I think that's another issue.

Using kubuntu 5.10.

Go to KControl, search for daemon and enter the "Service Manager"
Where you see "Startup Services", uncheck the one you don't want to run when KDE loads.
That's it!

kcontrol -> KDE Components -> File Associations

I don't know the native file type for audio CDs so I can't tell you which file type to modify.

Thanks for the quick reply. I stopped the Media Notifier Daemon and everything is now peachey.

For anyone else who has the same problem, don't stop KDED Media Manager as this seems to stop automounting.
