go to my computer, right click on your cd drive and choose properties. Then click on the autoplay tab and set your options for what you want windows to do when differnet types of cds are inserted, or you could just hit the restore defaults button at the bottom of that tab

Do this for every cdrom/cdrw/dvd drive that you have

you wont believe this but it happened to me too and the cure for it?
i removed both cdrom and cdrw
rebooted and let it read them

things were fine after that
tis as if there were more settings elsewhere disabling it

You might try this. Get yourself a copy of the XP Powertoys. Use Tweak UI to enable autoplay. I'm not sure if you'll have to reboot for it to take effect or not. Don't even know if it will work, but it's something to try.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
