    Yes, I have recently upgraded a cdrom for my friend.  Now, it reads cds fine.  However, it won't detect and lauch any autorun file on any cd.  To get programs to install, I have been going to Start, then, Run, then, typing the path D:\setup to initialize and lauch the setup file for installation.

     Is there any way to get the cdrom to detect and run autorun or autoinstall files?  Any information on this matter will be appreciated.
