    Auto Play

    Hi
    Any idea why a standalone laptop (Dell 505) should stop auto-playing CDs, DVDs etc all of a sudden. Even the 'What do you want Windows to do? box no longer appears?? All works fine if you right click and choose 'Play'. Associations are still there audio/WMP, DVD/PowerDVD. Odd.

    Re: Auto Play

    If you navigate to the following: Right click the optical drive > Properties > Autoplay Tab.

    Then select the settings you would like and it "should" work.

    Re: Auto Play

    You might also want to check

    gpedit.msc > User configuration > Administrative Templates > System >Turn Off Autoplay (set to "Disable")

    also

    regedit > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > System > Current Control Set > Services > CDrom > Autorun (set to "1" )
