Do you mean in the "File Systems" tab of the GNOME System Monitor? That's weird.

This is an old problem that's plagued Gnome for a long time. Associations have been borked. Search the forum for "Places opens vlc"

Re: disabling vlc from auto starting

Yea, I had the problem awhile back after I opened a DVD folder with vlc and accidently had the box checked to make it the default application.

I had to manually edit a file, but I forget which one it was now. Follow Wayne's advice about searching in here, I know the fix is in here because that's where I found it
