Can autosave be disabled somehow? 

I only see options for subtitles and a few other things in the list but no option to disable autosave as it's very annoying.

Check Options->Misc->Autosave:

md5: This is posted in the Dreamcast forum.

The Dreamcast port doesn't have the same launcher due to the overhead and limited memory on the port, so that bit of the UI is not available.

47iscool: I assume you are burning a CD to use on your Dreamcast? If so, you should be able to add a configuration file to the disk image with detection entries for the various games and add specific options such as autosave_period=0 to disable autosave:

I tried this:

scummvm.ini added this to the root of the disc and added this line at the top:autosave_period=0

It freezes up on boot, doesn't even show any games. Without it it seems to work fine.

That is not quite correctly formatted.

The configuration file contains sections defined by headers in square brackets. The "global" one is [scummvm]... so as a minimum, you would need the following two lines in the file:
[scummvm]
autosave_period=0
