Windows XP Home.
I am trying to make my DVDs play automatically. When I choose the drive, then properties and click on the options I need ( Play DVDs), then Apply etc., no matter what I do it reverts back to Play Music!
My PC does not want to play!
( If I open the DVD player software first, it then plays OK )

Have you tried letting it do it itself? it should pop a box up offering suggestions as what to do with the inserted cd/dvd if it does choose you dvd player and tick the box to always do that.

Tried that and it did not work - waited forever!
However, I greatly appreciate your interest in the problem and thank you very much for the idea.

YES! You have it right! The download 'AutoFix' worked a dream! I believe that I had another disk problem a short while ago and a forum member suggested a similar MS download which solved the problem also. Remarkable and thank you.
