My computer - tools -folder options - file types scroll ddown the list and select the media type and press the change button, select another program to open the file.

i.e. CDA opens with roxio click change scroll down and select Winws media player click ok.

Do this for any ffiles you wish to play / open with different programs.

I think you are referring to Auto Insert Notification. In My Computer right-click your CD/DVD drive and choose Properties then the AutoPlay tab. A type of file can be selected in the top dropdown list then you should click the button at the bottom labelled 'Prompt me each time to choose an action'. Some CD burning software disables this function so if you have recently installed this type of program then that may be the reason.
