you need to go into the device manager (right click on my computer) and click on properties.  Get the properties on the cdrom drive. Go to settings and make sure that "auto insert notification" is checked.

If that does not work then look in the registry for the AutoInsertNotification and change the value from "01" to "00"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE  / Enum / SCSI ..... (the name of the CDROM drive will be here)
