How do I stop iTunes from taking over?

I have a mac computer running the latest software. Just downloaded XLD to rip my CD's to flac. I use Plex to play my high res flac files. The question is how do I stop everything going to iTunes? Is there a way I can turn it off as the default player? I went through all the settings and I don't see how to accomplish this.

Every time I load a CD into my Mac, iTunes launches and reads the contents. I've not figured out how to disable this as it's dbPoweramp I want to rip with instead. So maybe the OP was referring to this same issue.

Open: System Preferences/Hardware/CD's & DVD's > "When you insert a music CD" (default is iTunes)

 

Change menu option to: "Open other application..." > dbPoweramp.app or XLD.app

As far as I know, the presence of a 'CDs & DVDs' preferences panel in recent versions of OS X depends on the Mac having a built-in optical drive, so wwaldman's advice might be applicable to the OP.

 

You are absolutely right. Sorry about that. I checked on an older iMac I have at work, and sure 'nuff:
