Bit by bit, I've been resolving problems with autoplay. My PC recognizes all manner of removable storage, but it won't autoplay a CD.

I ran autofix.exe from Microsoft and it found a problem that it was unable to fix. Here is the log:

AutoFix [V5.2.3790.67]
Time [2010-08-11 13:59:49]
Microsoft Windows Version [5.1 (Service Pack 3) <2600>]

>> Repair << [Autoplay V2 Event]
Step: No steps to take.
Result: This AutoPlay setting cannot be fixed. Either the device is malfunctioning, or the wizard cannot determine the problem.

>> Required action: The wizard found problems but cannot fix them -> None

I know others have had this issue. I found threads that had a similar log. Sadly, none of them had a fix other than going back to a previous restore point. My earliest restore point still has this issue, so that won't help me.

So far, this forum has been great at helping me fix my other issues. I'm hoping they can help with this last issue, too!

what kind of cd are you trying to autoplay?

If its not an audio disk, try an audio disk. if it is an audio disk, try a different audio disk.

If it still can't autoplay an audio disk let us know what it does. Can you open windows media player and play the music files from an audio disk from there?
