My Computer won't open disk

  johnincrete 09:06 17 Nov 2010

On the school computer there are 2 discs - c: and F: In My Computer, a double click on C: opens it at the root directory as normal. But when I double click on F: I get the "Open With" dialogue which lists all tghe programs (but not My Computer or Windows explorer. If I right click, the drop down has "Explore" as the 3rd item so that's OK.
Is there some setting or something that causes the two different action?

Yes there is a setting:

Rightclick on F drive > properties > AutoPlay tab > and choose the Action that you want - 'Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer' > click on Apply and OK

Did as suggested & got a confirmation that is was installed but it had no effect.

There's no Autoplay tab

By the way, I'm using XP sp3
