I seem to have lost the auto run function on my CD and DVD players.I am running XP home edition.
On a Compaq Presario 5000 series model 5wv254.
I recently upgraded to XP from ME and both drives worked at first.

Have you checked the registry setting if not try this.Go to
StartMenu/Run and type regedit enter, once the registry editor has opened go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\currentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutoRun and check the hexadecimal value it should be 91 if not you need to change it to this value.
