Working on a PC and cannot get autorun to work on any devices. ( CD rom, DVD, USB drive).
I have checked that autorun is enable and ran sfc.exe to see if any of the system files had been changed. A few files had been change but that did not correct the problem

What Operating system are using ? If it's XP try the following

    Click on Start button
    Go to Run
    Type gpedit.msc in the box
    Press Enter
    In the open window go to "Computer Configuration" =>"Administrative Template" => "System"
    In the right pane search Disable or "Turn off Autoplay"

If your using VISTA or WIN7 you can download this Autoplay Repair Wizard from Microsoft. The Microsoft AutoPlay Repair Wizard scans your computer devices to find defective AutoPlay settings, and attempts to fix those it finds - link below
