Solution: Apparently, for Windows 7 anyway, there was no option during installation to prevent PowerDVD from setting the Windows Autoplay hardware associations, despite providing a file format associations page. The Windows Autoplay associations deal with hardware rather than software and seems to be automatically set by Windows (you might notice the Autoplay pop-up whenever you put in a new disc of USB with media files on it). To prevent the error from happening, you must disable Windows Autoplay for any devices that were set to call PowerDVD, in this case for the Blu-rays (or any other media).

For Windows 7:
1. Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > AutoPlay
2. Under the Media pane, for every media option that lists “Play {media} using PowerDVD 17” change it to “Take no action”.
3. Click Save.

Now when you eject a Blu-ray disc through PowerDVD, it won’t give the error message.

If you’re still getting the error message, it might be due to something else. Good luck!
