Autoplay in Windows XP multiple account scenario

  Taylor44 16:32 13 Feb 2004

My son has just set up his family PC running WindowsXP Home with the multiple user option enabled.In spite of all four users accessing the same CD Rom drive, and all accounts showing the same configuration settings when the drive properties are examined,,my grandson's account will not autoplay in spite of his settings being identical to the other three users.Is there a limit to the number of accounts on one family PC or is ther something obvious I've overlooked in trying to correct this problem for them??.Any advice as usual,would be most welcome..

I too am having the same problem with 2 out of 4 user accounts.
I have a Mesh PC and the only programs the 2 have used which the 2 unaffected have not are the Pinnacle CD writer software and Creative MP3 player software.

Sorry for the delay in posting.

In your case the Pinnacle software will disable the Autorun feature in the belief that it will interupt the burning process otherwise.
