Autoplay

Messages

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.

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...
