To Disable CD autoplay, completely, in Windows XP Home

Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT    Then go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Create a new value called: NoDriveTypeAutoRun
Type is: DWORD
Value is: 0x000000b1 (177)

You may need to log off/log on or reboot for the change to take effect.  Additionally, you may need Administrator privileges to edit the Registry.

To undo this change, set the NoDriveTypeAutoRun value back to 91 (145) instead of B1 (177)
