Due to my employer's IT policy, I'm not allowed to have any kind of MP3 playing software on my computer. I do, however, like to plug my iPod into my computer to keep the battery charged during working hours. Normally, I plug the iPod in, Windows mounts the drive, then I have to go in and eject the drive so I can run my iPod normally while still keeping it charged.
Is there any way I can keep Windows from mounting the drive (and this drive only, I still use my USB flash drive a lot) from auto-mounting?
Update: Maybe this is more of an iPod issue, but specifically I would like for the iPod to not display the "Do not disconnect" message when plugged in.
