The autorun facility on the dvd/cd no longer works, I can open manually but can no longer play a slide show just by putting dvd into slot,I have googled this problem and several sites offer a download BUT they are .exe, is there a simple answer? Woodburner
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.
