    Right Click on the drive / Properties / Autoplay tab/

    There should be two check boxes
    1 that says "Select an action to perform"
    and another that says "Prompt me each time to choose an action"

    More than likely your 1st box is checked and saying "Take no action"

    You need to either select the option "Prompt me each time to choose an action" or choose a specific task.

    This should solve your problem.
