My Dell computer running Windows XP will no longer autoplay discs of any kind. I have gone into the properties for the drives in Explorer and ensured the Autoplay TAb has the button at "prompt" selected but this has no effect. When I insert a disc, be it a Music CD or a Video DVD, the drive reads it and the egg timer cursor appears on the screen but that is all that happens. I then have to open the CD or DVD using the program I want such as Power DVD. In every other respect the drives (one is a DVD - one is a DVD/RW) work normally. I didn't notice when this started to be a problem and I wonder if anyone has a solution?
