Anyone help please. My XP laptop stopped displaying the Autoplay menu i.e. where you are asked where you want to open files to view them from a CD, Stick,or card. When a USB device is added it plays the short musical tone but no menu. I can right click individual devices and select autoplay options but that makes no difference, overall the menu does not appear.
(My Win7 laptop - "Cont Panel - Hardware & Sound - Autoplay" produces a comprehensive Autoplay settings menu wuth a check box "Use Autoplay for all media devices") Cant find similar menu in XP???
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: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\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.
If Autoplay does not work in XP, here's another fix:
Run Regedit Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\Explorer. Delete the Key "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" Reboot the Computer.
