cds do not autoplay

  baa 17:08 20 Feb 2009

When I insert a cd or dvd it does not autoplay.
The same happens if I insert a program cd.
I have to go to my computer and click on a cd drive to get it to play.
I have a cube computer & xp home os.

I know of the cube pc, but I am not familiar with it. However, normally in My Computer one would right-click on the CD ROM icon, then Properties and then set Autoplay to one's own preferences.

Could try this: C:\Windows\Repair & copy ‘autoexec.nt’ file and paste onto/into system32 folder

did you go to control panel and autoplay?
and reset the setting that you want.
