    Autoplay

    I have been using the same set up for years Windows Vista. Recently the autoplay function has stopped running when disc is inserted into dvd rw drive. I have done all the necessary set ups on the auto-play page but still nothing, I have set it back to default still nothing, it doesn't even open the options box when a disc is inserted. I have to go to the dvd rw drive and open the disc from there, which is a real pain every time.
    I would be most grateful for your thoughts and or suggestions.

    Thanks but I have already tried all of the options on that page, nothing seems to get it working.

    I will check a little more, if it does not open there can be a couple of things, one being that your Disk drive is bad and needs to be replaced, I will look up a couple of things for you...

    I did a restore the registry from last known good configuration, and my old dvd rw drive is now working with auto play, but my new Pioneer dvd rw drive will not run auto play, is there some set up to be done with this new drive.
