Hi there,

1. Click Start, then click My Computer, and Right-Click the drive that you use to play DVD's.

2. Under the Auto Play tab, select DVD Movie from the drop-down list.

3. In the Actions box, tick the "Select an action to perform" option and select the application of your choice.

4. Click Apply-->OK and your done.

NOTE: Selecting the "Prompt me each time to choose an action" option may suite you better for the simple fact that it lets you decide what to do, instead of auto-starting everytime. Sometimes you may not want to watch the DVD right away, maybe you might want to open it in another Media Player. Just a little food for thought.

Hope this helps,

nos :thumbsup:
