Right click on the cd drive, go into the autoplay tab, change the default action for software/programs to open, or change all of them to "Ask me every time".

I had this problem. All Autoplay features for USB, Firewire, etc. is working but the Disc drive was not happening :huh: . Only way to get in was to right click and Explore. I ended up correcting it by enabling a registry setting.

Open regedit.

Here is the registry path:

See the AutoPlay entry. If the number in the () at the end is 0, then it is disabled. Change this value to 1.

Exit out of the registry and reboot.

As soon as I rebooted, the Autoplay opened on every CD and DVD since. :huh:

Backup your registry before attempting a registry edit. One little mistake in the wrong area can render your system unbootable.
