    This is probably due to a bit of software that you have installed that may have disabled the Autorun feature, or it may have occurred some other way. If you follow the instructions below and go into the Registry Editor and check the hex value is set correctly, and then edit the hex value if it is wrong, then this should remedy the problem.

     Type regedit into the run box in the start menu, then goto Hkey local machine  -> System -> Currentcontrolset -> Services ->

    Then search and click on the ‘Cdrom’ folder you should have some hex and binary files in the right side of the window, if you right click on the hex value named ‘auto run’, and click modify then make sure the value is set to ‘1’ then click ok, if you then restart your machine it should work
