Hi I downloded a software programme from a major world company but did-not make a restore point before the down load to clean my register following the downloas I have lost my Aulto Play for DVD and Card Readet.I now have to go to computer and click the DVD drive to start the DVD and it will only go and operate via Media Player...this is the same with my usb picture card operate I have to go the computer and click the card F drive. The software company have not been able to fix the problem after three days...i have now seen people with the same problem on the internet asking for assistance, are you able to offer any assistance or will I have to clean my HD and reload the OS system.

Autorun does not work in XP, here's a fix:

Run Regedit Go to HKEYCURRENTUSER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\Explorer. Delete the Key "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" Reboot the Computer.

and a couple more things to try

Autoplay Repair Wizard

Autoplay disable/enable 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER. 2. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEYLOCALMACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom 3. 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. 4. Restart your computer.
