Windows Media Player

Hi Folks,

When I put a CD/DVD into my DVD/CD Drive usually a Windows Media Player window appears with Play CD highlighted & I click OK. This is not happening any more & my CDs don't play.

Please Help!!!

Try downloading the below program. I have had problems in the past with autoplay and this program always sorted it out :)

Auto play disable/enable

1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.

2. Locate and click the following registry key:


3. To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero).

4. To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1.

ambra4, FatboySlim71,

Thanks very much for your reply. I shall check it all out tomorrow. We have the rascals here for the weekend - our adorable Gkids.

Take care
