Is it set to autorun?  Which OS?
If 98SE - Start-Settings-Control Panel-System-Device Manager-Select your CDRom and look under settings.

Most likely autorun has been disabled.  Does this happen on all CD's or just one.

Autorun can be disabled using things like TweakUI or through the device manager.  Try searching the help for 'autorun' to identify the registry setting required.

You may try Microsoft Powertoy.
Use Tweak UI in Control Panel,in Paranoia option,you may change it. If that still does not work, that maybe operation system problem or CD' problem.
