Open My Computer > R click on the Cd or DVD drive > Properties > 'Autoplay' Tab.

Choose your options from there.

Autoplay Repair Wizard click here

Autoplay disable/enable
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, 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). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1.
4. Restart your computer.

If Autoplay still does not work in XP, here's aother fix:

Run Regedit
Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\Explorer.
Delete the Key "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"
Reboot the Computer.

Download Tweak UI from microsoft.
It can fix that and many other problems much less dangerous than reg edit.

Good Luck

My autoplay works when I insert a dvd but not a cd!! Ive right clicked on properties on the D drive and clicked Windows media to open with and all the usual but with no joy...When I put the disc in it just comes up with all the tyrack files.. I think were CDA files??? or sometings close to that,,,
