Autoplay...

#1
Not sure where exactly to put this...

You know when you insert CD's of different types (data, music, DVD, etc) windows pops up and asks you what you want to do? Well, I want to disable the autoplay for all types all at once for both my CDRW and DVD drive.

Is there a reg entry that can disable autoplay without me setting the "take no action" option for every event for both drives?

In XP Pro:

Start>Run>gpedit.msc
Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>System
Double-click "Turn autoplay off" and set it to Enabled.

:)

In XP Home (gpedit.msc is not included):

Start>Run>regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer

Create a new DWORD value called: NoDriveTypeAutoRun
with value = 0x000000b5 (181)

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
