CD Autorun not working

  Pesala 18:01 23 Feb 2003

Following the response to my earlier post I created a file called Autorun.inf with the line

[AUTORUN] shellexecute=file.html

I copied that file first onto a newly formatted Direct CD-RW disk. I then copied my web page index.html and associated files.

The webpage works OK, but the CD doesn't autorun.
Following the advice of another thread I checked the registry and found the keys:

CDTypeAutoRun 00 00 00 00
NoDriveTypeAutoRun 95 00 00 00

Do I need to change the first key to 95 00 00 00

How else can I get my CD to run? Magazine cover disks startup just fine.

Go to My Computer>Device Manager>highlight your CD-ROM drive>Properties and check whether Auto Insert Notification has been enabled.

If not, check the box and also DMA if this is not enabled.

and DMA are ticked for both drives.

That should have been



I had them on the same line, which may be why it doesn't work. One problem with messages posted in this forum, is that single carriage returns are ignored.

All posters please note, when posting commands that have to be on separate lines, use DOUBLE carriage returns -- SINGLE carriage returns are removed!!!

Sorry about that, Pesala. I didn't notice that the other post had inserted them on the one line. I just pasted an Autorun file I use, into my reply and didn't check it. Sorry for causing you a little trouble. I'll check my posts more thoroughly in future. :-(

It wasn't meant as a complaint or criticism. I have done the same myself to find my careful formatting is lost so the message is hard to follow.

Just a warning to everyone to be on the look-out for such syntax errors.

Thanks, Pesala, I'm just happy it worked for you.
