Mint 7 opens my USB drives

Postby boysha » Sat May 30, 2009 5:08 pm

Hi,
I have this annoying thing happening...I have an USB external drive connected to my system and Mint 7 opens the explorer window of that drive every so often by itself.
Did anyone had that problem? Does anyone know how to stop this from happening?
Thanks!
Neb

HI,
You can go to Edit-Preferences in Nautilus (file browser), or go to FIle Management in Preferences in the mintMenu. Once you have the properties window, go to the Media tab. You can stop what you desire here on the bottom two checks.
