When I insert a CD or DVD it will not “auto play”. I have tried just about everything I can do to try and get it running: Shift F10, a Right Click, Edit followed by the drop down menu etc. You name it, I’ve tried it. I can not use my arms due to my left arm being amputated and my right arm being paralysed due to a motorbike accident. I use Speech Recognition and when I’m feeling lazy, I use a large stiff nylon rod to type (like using one finger to type). With this in mind and 16 years since my accident, I think I know most tricks and shortcuts. Can anyone out there shed any light? I have Windows XP Professional, SP2 with the latest updates.
section, clickon the Cdrom folder and takea look in the righthand pane. See if the "Autorun" entry is set to 0 (zero), if it is, then double-click on it and set the value to 1 (one). Exit the registry, reboot your computer and see if it has helped. Be careful when in the registry and don't change anything else. If it is necessary to edit that Autorun value, go to File > Export and backup that part of the registry by giving the file a name and clicking "save".
Thanks everso much to you all so far. I shall away and try all of these and get back to you ASAP.
