Recently I have noticed that when I put an installation disc [or data discs for that matter] into either the cd or dvd drive they do not autorun. This leaves me 'guessing' which files to run the install from. The upshot has been that I have not been able to connect hardware i.e. mobile phones to the pc.
How can I get discs to be auto-run when insert into a drive?
I also looked in the AutoPlay and tried to change the options going down the dropdown menu selcting one and then clicking apply. However it appears that they do not 'stick' and revert back to the default settings Again the discs do not auto-run.
This is getting very frustrating now as I have software to load but the discs do not automatically run and I run the risk of improper manual installing
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 still 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.
