Hi,
I bought a few months ago a WD passport 320GB, great little HDD. I didn't like the format it was in so I reformatted it to NTFS
I also at the time didn't like/need to be prompt by the autorun, so I ticked the box at the bottom "do this action all the time"(which was open the drive in a folder).
I have now changed my system of doing things and am now using the geek.menu and portable apps setup on this HDD. But since I told this HDD to bypass the autorun and just open in a folder I now get the HDD opening up in a folder all the time, which is what I intended at the time, but now I would like to change my system and have either the autorun menu come up or have geek.menu just start up with no autorun.

I have googled and googled and tried many fixes,

TweakUI: autoplay\types\ticked box enable autoplay for removable drives
WGAplugininstaller: can not open has error 0x80070002 have tried to fix the error using Microsoft knowledge base nothing worked to fix it.
Autofix: The wizard found problems but cannot fix them.

I have tried this HDD in other computers and autoplay works fine, I have tried other USB drives in this computer and they all work fine.

I have googled registry fixes but none of those seem to be for my exact problem (so did not attempt).

This is driving me batty, I thought that been such a common used tool in XP that there would be somewhere to configer the settings without being a expert....

I'm getting used to being Microsofted

XP Home SP2
3.00GHz
2GB Ram

Log from Autofix:

	  Step: No steps to take.
	  Result: This AutoPlay setting cannot be fixed. Either the device is malfunctioning, or the wizard cannot determine the problem.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the Reply Hamluis,
But that wasn't the problem.
I don't know what I did, but the menu is know back. 2 days of pain and I will never know the answer.

Link was provided because it gives specific instruction on how to disable/enable autoplay...not as a cure to your specific situation.

You might hang onto it, for future use :thumbsup:.

Glad you think you've solved it, happy computing :flowers:.
