How can I make the the CD rom drive auto run the CD when it is entered? I have a new PC running XP, and this always used to work on the old one. I did find a tip here somewhere, (lost it now) and tried it. This did not work. Any more suggestions please.

Open up "NotePad" and type in the following (remember no double enters thou)...

[autorun]

open=

icon=

___________

Type in the file you wish to open in the open field and if you want an icon, type in the path for the icon/file that you wish to use as the icon....

Thank you to all who responded. As usual the answer came through. The one from VoG™ did the trick for this problem. BRYNIT the link you posted was the one I found and lost. I did try that the other day with no success. So once again thanks for the help.
