Autoplay: It's not working.

B

boofer

I already went to the autoplay troubleshooting and FAQ. I followed the
command prompt steps and it did NOT work. I did restart, too, by the way.

I have my autoplay settings set to install and run software and games.

I am trying to download a game I bought and I put it in the drive. I push it
in and wait. And wait. And wait. And wait. It does not detect anything,
therefore, I cannot install my games.

How do I fix this? What do I do? How can I INSTALL my games?

Hi Boofer,

You might look at this tutorial on AutoPlay to see if it will help you. Make sure that the box is checked at the top (Step 3) and that the service is Enabled and Started.

In the mean time, you should be able to right click on your DVD drive and click "Open". Then just click on the "Setup" or "Install" file for the game to install it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

1. Click to open "Computer" located on the Start Menu.
2. Right-click on your DVD drive, and then click
"Run enhanced content" or "Install" or "run program".

Oh I found out what is wrong. My Drive E: will NOT show. How can I make it
show? That is the drive that the disk is in.
