There is a utility that you can download from Microsoft called Tweak UI - part of the Power Toys for Windows XP collection. Amongst its other features, it allows you to select wich drives you want to enable or disable the autoplay function.
If my memory serves me correctly the first time you use an Audio CD with XP it asks what you want it to do. One of those options was 'nothing' there was also a 'remember my choice' option. If you can get that menu back again, you could chose for it do do nothing.
If you open my computer and right click on the cd drive, and then select properties. If you then click on the second tab "Autoplay", you can change what happens when you insert a cd. Hoperfully that will sort your problem out.
