   Go to Device Manager > CDROM.  Go the driver properites. Click Settings.  Check the box next to "Auto insert notification".

You did in XP then you have something a I don't.

For me I open Explorer and right click on the drive and then click on properties then click on Auto Play. There you will see a whole host of options. They can be confusing so you have to play around with the settings.

Or download this free utility http://www.xteq.com/ and when you open it go to

System > File System > CD Auto Star
Then Click on the the Auto Starts.
After each change you must click on the Apply Changes button before moving on to do anything else.

I was just in the middle of writing that I can't find it.  All I have is General, Programs, Volumns & Driver no where is there settings.  CrazyOne, isn't there somewhere I can set the CDr to autoplay besides getting that program?

I see Autorun but it just has files & it is set on music files; then a place for other files on a drop down menu.  There is no place to auto run games & such.  Only Prompt me each time.  Geez

hi:

perhaps..

Start >Run type "regedit" {enter}

Navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CURRENTCONTROLSET/SERVICES/CDROM

Change the variable Autorun from 1 to 0 to disable
Change the variable Autorun from 0 to 1 to enable

Personally I prefer what ever the xteg does because if allows you to choose Autorun for data and Auto run for music rather then just atuorun for everthing.

Incidentally TweakUi covers this and a load of other things. You can download it from Micorosoft direct, try doing a search, or get it from other download sites like tucows.

Thanks everyone, I'll try the suggestions.  Actually, I was asking for my son on his computer so going into the bios is dangerous for him so I downloaded the autorunenable.reg from CrasyOne.  He'll try that one & if it doesn't help I'll send him to TweakUi.
