Can anyone please help me ? I am still quite a novice on PCs and my pc has stopped autoplay, I have a dvd re-writer and rom installed, up until now they have worked fine, I have tried the autoplay in the control panel and have tried Microsoft autoplay repair but neither will work, Microsoft repair has told me there is a major malfunction but the drives work fine if i go to my computer and click on either drive, I don`t know if it is a coincidence but my Windows Media player will not connect if I double click on it. any help please.....Alan
Hi, WMP will not start if I double click on the icon but if I open the music disc from `my computer/drive` `f` or `g` and then click on the individual track it will then play in WMP, I have not installed any additional software,
the problem with autoplay is with anything I put into the drive, be it music/dvd/data nothing will autoplay
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: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom 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 does not work in XP, here's a fix:
Run Regedit Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\Explorer. Delete the Key "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" Reboot the Computer.
