I just installed Vista Home Basic (32-bit) on my Toshiba Qosmio X305 laptop. The system works nicely and there are no flags in Device Manager. When I insert a music CD or video DVD, Windows Media Player does not start. I have set the AutoPlay options in Control Panel.
I must note that there are no "Devices" listed at the bottom the AutoPlay Control Panel applet.
On another, possibly related note, when I connect my eSata drive to the computer, it does not automatically come up in Windows Explorer. I have to restart the computer after connecting the eSata drive, then it works properly.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
