I hate that behavior. It is OK as a user configurable *option* but
makes for a poor default IMHO since more often than not I'm inserting
a blank cd intending to burn something using my app of choice & have
to wait for the silly burn:// folder to come up, The other times I'm
inserting a blank CD because I want to back something up *later*. In
either case the current default bites(tm). I just turned it off. Sorta
reminds me of XPs deal of wanting to autolaunch apps / file browsers /
whatever when media (blank or otherwise) is inserted. yrrgh. YMMV :).
