Hi all the problem i've got is when i used to insert a dvd into drive windows would give me options on what i would like to do i.e play dvd,copy dvd etc. These options no longer appear and i was wondering how to turn them back on as i must have disabled them without knowing hope someone can help many thanks in advance.

Go to My computer and right click the appropriate drive, click on autoplay and select DVD movie from the drop down box. Put the dot in 'select action to perform' and highlight what you want it to do.Click apply then OK.

Thanks for that christmascracker tried as you suggested but still not happening is there anywhere else i could have unchecked a box i just used to insert dvd in drive and it would ask me what i wanted to do this was very handy have tried selecting prompt me for action to perform but when i insert dvd still nothing hope you can think of something else cheers

Have you tried clicking the 'Apply defaults' box?

you could try removing the dvd player from Device Manager and it should detect it when you restart and reset it to your default

Open My Computer

Right click on the DVD drive

select properties, then a autoplay,

remove the dot from "Select an Action to Perform"

click on the "Prompt me each time to choose an action".

Thanks to everyone for their input but it still doesn't play or give me options have to open win dvd or media player to play dvd's i can,t think why it doesn't do it anymore obviously something i've done at some point if anyone has any more suggestions i'd be most grateful i do recall clicking "TAKE NO ACTION" option once would that make it think i didn't want to use these options again and if so how do i reset this grasping at straws now!!!!!! it's no big deal anyway can still play cd's and dvd's but it's annoying me i hate the p.c beating me (should be used to it by now) thanks again.
