Getting CD's to auto play upon inserting disc

How do i enable autoplay in Win 98 so that cd's start playing with CDPlayer when i insert them into the drive? As of right now, i have to go through the menu to open up CD player. THe files are already assoc'd with the program, so what should i do?

Hi,

  From a previous posting:

You need to re-enable auto-insert notification.
To do that, go to: start->settings->control panel
                          double click on "system"
                          click on "device manager" tab
                          open the "cdrom" branch
                          double click on the listed cdrom (ie. goldstar cdrom cdr-8240b)
                          click on the "settings" tab
                          check the "auto insert notification" box
                          click "ok"
                           
You may have to restart after this, but it should fix the problem.

that box was already checked. I had tried that already, still a no-go. What next?

VH,

   Do you have TweakUI installed?  If so, make sure the option to play audio cds is also enabled there.

VH,

   TweakUI is a free utility included in your Win98 CD.  Take a look in your Control Panel folder and see if there is an icon for TweakUI.  If there is, you have it installed.

VH,

   Ok, now i am somewhat stumped.  I have two suggestions:

1) Install TweakUI (it is a great program) and enable auto cd play in the program.  Go to help and do a search for TweakUI and it will tell you how to install it.  It is on the 98 CDRom.

2) Reinstall Win98 to correct corrupt registry settings or corrupt files.

If you don't like any of the above, please reject my answer so others can answer it.
