    My cd rom/dvd rom drives will not autoplay.

    I have checked the autoplay settings by right clicking on the drive.

    I have changed the disable autoplay setting in the riegistry to 1.

    I have physically unplugged the drives restarted then restarted with them plugged back in.

    I have run gpedit.msc computer configuration/administartive templates/system and checked those settings.

    There is 1 more registry setting i found but I do not know what it gets set to.


    I dont know what else to do. I wish this would work.

    Thanks - Tfp

    Please help if you know the answer.

    EAC (exact audio copy) won't even recognize my drives and I have a feeling it is related.

    if you changed disable autoplay to turned disabling autoplay on!, change it to 0 :)

    Before when it didn't work it was set to 0.

    Then changed to 1 and still didnt work

    Now Changed to 0 and works.

    Thank you very much Qumahlin.

    I posted this thread in multiple forums for a better chance of people seeing it and helping me, since sometimes people only view certain forums.

    Sorry for the inconveinience Khayman (spelling)

    EAC still wont recognize cd/dvd drives though :(

    Now it is at 0 and it don't work again.

    I tried changing it back to 1 and then back to 0 but it just don't work anymore.

    It worked like 3 times before when i tried it the first time.

    Any more ideas.

    I have also trouble with autorun.
    It works occasionally - maybe one time in 8

    I will check registry settings later (I'm at work now)

    Download PowerToys and disable it there. It's got a special function for Audio and Data CD's.
