How can I stop import photo prompt when attaching external drive to my computer?

Level 2

When I attach my external hard drive for back up purposes, Dropbox asks me to import photos.  I don't want to do that, but the window asking the question returns every 2 seconds, even if I say "Never for this device" or "cancel."  How can I get this function turned off?

Disable the Camera Uploads option from Dropbox Preferences.
