Any advice please, Autoplay has stopped opening & asking when a USB device is connected. I think I know what caused it but not what to do. I have two Win 7 laptops one 32bit one 64bit I installed VMWare player (a must have)on both machines. The 32bit machine is fine with Auto Play menu working but Auto play no longer opens on the 64 bit laptop. 1)Auto play settings are correct in Control panel. 2)services.msc Shell hardware is started and on Auto. 3)regedit NoDriveTypeAutoRun was found to be 0x000000ff (disabled I think) so I set it to 91HEX but still does not work. 4) Auto Run is set to 1. Thanks for looking.
Thanks for reply Fruit Bat, after posting I suddenly remembered that SP1 downloaded yesterday onto the 64 bit (not auto playing machine) so problem must have come along with it. Will have to study your link now. (I probably followed a red herring by suspecting VM palyer as its also on the working machine)
