My laptop has taken to not sensing the presence of any disc when I load it. Matters not whether it be audio, data, program. I'm stuck with transferring files via USB devices. Any suggestions as to remedy.

Open My Computer and under Devices with Removable Storage, right-click the CD-ROM drive, and then click Properties. On the AutoPlay tab, click the multimedia content type you want to change.
Under Actions, click the action you want Windows to perform when it detects the media type you selected.


If that does not solve the problem go to start/control panel/performance and maintenance. Click on system icon, then hardware tab and finally device manager button.

Go down to cd drives and see if there is a yellow or red icon next to drive. If so right click on device and choose uninstall. Reboot and let windows reinstall device drivers.

I recently worked on a computer with autoplay disabled and had a heck of a time with it. Regfixes didn't work, changing settings on the tabs or just changing to default didn't work. I finally downloaded a tool from Microsoft that fixes the problem. Autoplay Tool
