Go into the explorer, view, options, file types. Click cdrom file type, edit. Make sure that the play is highlighted in large black bold letters. If it is small letters, highlight it and choose default. That might do it.

    The information in this article applies to:

         Microsoft Windows 95
         Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 4.0
         Microsoft Windows NT Server version 4.0

    IMPORTANT: This article contains information about editing the registry. Before you edit the registry, make sure you understand
    how to restore it if a problem occurs. For information about how to do this, view the "Restoring the Registry" Help topic in
    Regedit.exe or the "Restoring a Registry Key" Help topic in Regedt32.exe.

    SYMPTOMS

    When you insert a CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, it may not be run automatically in Windows 95.

    CAUSE

    This issue can occur if there is an incorrect value in the Windows 95 registry.

    RESOLUTION

    WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system.
    Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your
    own risk.

    For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or
    the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up
    the registry before you edit it. To resolve this issue, use Registry Editor to locate the following key:

       HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
       Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutoRun


    Modify the value for the NoDriveTypeAutoRun key to 0000 95 00 00 00 (or 0x95
    in Regedt32.exe).
