Hi Adam

Yes it is. goto

system->preferences->removable drives and media

You'll find a check box marked "burn a cd or dvd when a blank disc is 

Just uncheck it


He who sees everything as nothing but the Self, and the Self in everything he 
sees, such a seer withdraws from nothing.  For the enlightened, all that 
exists is nothing but the Self, so how could any suffering or delusion 
continue for those who know this oneness?
