Your problem is something to do with Windows Media Player 9 Autoplay and only affects XP. I,m sorry I don't know the remedy but if you can access a programme called Bigfix it has the solution.

Go to start>run and type in the window sfc /scannow and have your xp disc at the ready.

Good luck..............bretsky;0)
