AutoRun doesn't AutoRun

It's probably a stupid question but my autorun doesn't come on when I instert a disc. It used to and I haven't changed anything. Is there something I have to setup to make it work again?

In Windows ME, right-click on the My Computer icon, select properties, device manager, then the CDROM drive(s). Check the settings on the properties for each drive and ensure that autoinsert notification is enabled.

Same for Win98

But bear in mind that not all CDs will autorun. Test with a known one that does (most freedisks fall into this category!).

I'm running XP and I've checked in device manager but it doesn't have autoinsert. It only has device usage which is enabled. Can anyone offer a solution please.

I too have this problem eversince I installed Service pack one. It is no great problem but an inconvenience. This is on a 5 month old laptop.

Back up the registry.

Go to start/ run & enter regedit.

Go to edit/ find search for nodrivetypeautorun all as one word.

When it finds it in the right hand pane double click on it.

Make sure base is set to hexadecimal then change the value to 91

Go to "My Computer" and right click the drive and select "Properties", select the "Auto Play" tab and choose the setting you require.
