Both my DVD Drive no longer run on auto play. I have check out previous threads concerning this problem and have tried them but still I cannot get the auto run on either drive to work. Any ideas?

Usually its down to cd/dvd writing software preventing the drive from autorunning, search microsofts knowledge base for autorun problems
there is a fix available (only for xp) that tries to restore autorun to its former glory.

Doesnt always work but its worth a go

Cheers, Mav

P.s if that doesnt work drop me a line I will send you the registry key to change to try and enable it again

Put a shortcut to your DV Drive on your desktop and double click on it , I have found that this get's it up and running.

What software do you have installed on your pc ?

There must be something loading on startup that is stopping autorun....did you try the autorun fix tool from microsoft ?

I think we need a little more information

Problem solved thanks. A friend of mine found a fix on Microsoft's site and it worked first time on each drive. I have included the link in case anyone else needs to download it. Thanks for trying anyway.
