Hi have just installed Windows 7 everything is fine expect for one small thing. When I put DVD/CD into the drive instead of it starting automaticy as it did before i have to go to computer then to the dvd/cd drive then double click it for the dvd etc will play is there a way i can resolve this so i can get it to play as soon as i put my disk in as it did before going over to windows 7 thanks also it seems to do it on vista on my desk top where as before you had a litle list come up asking what do you want to use for dvd or cd i would like to get it back

There's a MS hotfix for this midway down this page click here, under 'How to disable or enable all Autorun features in Windows 7 and other operating systems'. G

click start, in the searchbox type auto. Click on AutoOlay in the list. In the window that opens tick the box for 'Use AutoPlay for all media and devices'.

AutoOlay = AutoPlay.
