I have a new Samsung RV511 l/top. Coming from XP I wasn't familiar with Autoplay & it popped up all the time so I read on the MS website that it could be disabled, which I did, hoping that when I inserted a DVD or attached my camera I would get a wizard or a 'run' box/instructions of some sort but nothing happened. So I re-enabled Autorun, set everything to 'ask me everytime' but nothing happens at allnow when I insert a DVD ot attach my camera. It was only disabled for 5 mins - what did I do wrong??

Note the two entries in registry:

NoDriveTypeAutoRun registry entry - alter the value

NoDriveAutoRun registry key - By default, Windows 7 and Vista does not add any NoDriveAutoRun registry subkey. And you probably don’t want to block any drive from AutoPlay too. So remove and delete all NoDriveAutoRun key in the registry.
