My OS was windows 7 that was upgraded to windows 10 when it was still free. I have not used this pc very often because it is a backup pc in case my main pc has a problem.


Anyway, I have been working on it recently because it had a problem installing updates (I have fixed that problem thanks to members of this site) BUT I now have noticed that the AUTOPLAY feature was not working. So I did the fixes that showed up online BUT it still does not work. The AUTOPLAY works just fine on my main pc which was upgraded from 7 to 10 as well.


I did this (as well as other fixes):


To help you with your concern regarding AutoPlay on your computer, I suggest you to reset the settings of the auto play. Kindly follow the steps below:

  1. Press Windows key
  2. Search Control Panel and locate AutoPlay
  3. See if the Use AutoPlay for all media and devices box is checked
  4. Scroll down and click Reset all defaults
  5. Insert the DVD and and see if AutoPlay is working


It seems as though many other people are having the same problem-so maybe someone out there has the right answer.

Check Solution 2 on editing the registry. Read method 2 twice before attempting. Always be careful when editing the registry. If you do not want to edit the registry you can download the two reg files on the below page. Do not download the "tool" to fix your registry.




If solution 2 does not work then proceed the next solution. You cannot do solution 5 as home does not have Group Policy.
