autorun no longer starts

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?

Which OS, if it's Vista open the Control Panel and select Autoplay then choose how you want it to respond.

Right click the drive in My Cmputer and you should find an autorun tab.

Autoplay Repair Wizard click here

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:
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.

I will add to post as my autoplay is not working either. I am pretty sure its due to me disabling it due to a security warning.

My setting are ok based on r/c on D drive/properties/autoplay tab/choose WMP but still not working.

I have just following your regedit navigation but when reaching the last part, the choice I have is>

Default REG_SZ (value not set)
HonorAutoRunSe REG_DWORD 0x00000001(1)
NoCDBurning REG_DWORD 0x00000000(0)
