    Found this - might help

    Explains how to enable also.

    "Turn Off Autoplay For CDs

    Click Start , click Run , type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
    Locate and click the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom
    -To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero).
    -To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1.
    Restart your computer.
    (NOTE : This method disables automatically running CD-ROMs.
    If you want to disable automatically running CD-ROMs depending on the CD-ROM that you insert in the CD-ROM drive, you can press and hold down one of the SHIFT key while you insert the CD-ROM."
