both my writer and dvd rom drive will not autoplay i can only access a disc through my computer.bit of a prob if i try to install a 2 disc game as it will not access the 2nd disc automatically.how can i get them to autoplay. also when i explore a disc and later eject it the drive still shows the disc as being in the drive.
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.
excellent suggestion fruit bat.already tried auto play wizard which found no problems. never thought of the registry,anyway they have the 1 value in there ok but the top line has this. name type data ab (default) reg_sz (value not set) do i try setting this value as 1 or not.i am wary of trying it without comfirmation as it is the registery. any chance peeking at yours for me to see what it is set at. cheers.
jay.p, that is the same entry as I have, so don't change it. The line after AutoRun in my system has AutoRunAlwaysDisable, and a list of drives. Does yours have a similar line, and if so is your drive in the list?
