    How to disable (double) USB flash drive autorun

    Hello,

    I'm using 11.10 w/ GNOME shell. When I plug in a USB flash drive, its contents open in an autorun folder, but I also get the small pop-up USB menu for opening it. I would like to only have this menu for such instances, so how can I disable USB autorun folders in 11.10?

    Here's the screenshot of both folder and menu: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-B...5%25253A44.png

    just reread your question

    To disable this
    go - System Preferences -- Removable Drives and Media:
    and check the settings there ...
