CD Autorun/Autoplay Doesn't Work

  Narayan Adhikari 21:02 28 Mar 2005

I have recently lost the windows default CD Autorun/Autoplay feature. All data, music and video CDs/DVDs used to start accordingly or used to asks for the action to be done. Now all the cds/dvds just opens in windows folder window. One friend suggested to use Microsoft's Autofix program, I tried but didn't work. Can anybody help.

Go to My Computer and right click on the appropriate drive (CD, DVD, etc).

Click Properties, AutoPlay.

Select the appropriate media and action to perform. Apply; OK

Thanks Jackcoms,

I had already tried this before posting this problem, both by assigning particular application to particular cd/dvd types as well as restoring defaults for all cd/dvd types. But it still doesn't work!

Try System Restore

I tried to restore the system, but my restore points was stored only for two weeks, my problem started almost a month ago, that's why it doesn't work either. I think there is no solution for this particular problem now!!!

I have already tried autofix from Microsoft. But still didn't work.

try this ... AutoPlay Repair Tool ...number 234 on the right click here save it and run it.

That's the MS AutoFix tool. Same as JonnyTub's link. I have same problem but only with autorun for blank CDR's. I have set it up to start Nero StartSmart but when I insert a blank disk nothing happens.

I solved it by the following,

Went into my computer, found the DVD/DVRW drives and right clicked on them.

Clicked on properties, and then autoplay. Then I played with various choices until I got it to work. Not very helpful, but can't remember exactly what I did - except with the choice of music files. Never mind, this might help.
