That is something Windozy, most probably a service integrated with your desktop (gnome, kde, whatever), or less possible, something Mint-specific.
I guess looking at Mint forums for how automount works will be your best bet.
To muddle through it, I would `sudo fgrep C63403D43403C701 /etc - r` to locate the config of the said service.
It looks like gvfs (gnome virtual file system) is involved.

Is it just me, or most users on linux forums ask how to stop their automagical desktop from deciding for themselves? 0x10+ years using (well almost) only linux, no Desktop and still happy :-) [Gentoo with Windowmaker]
