CDs or DVDs won’t autoplay?

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

I ran into a little problem on a client’s computer recently and I thought I’d share the accumulated research I had done to fix it.  I won’t go into details, so this post if probably just for you nerds out there, but I hope it helps someone!

This is the complete list of potential fixes that I found for a Windows XP based computer that refuses to autoplay any CDs or DVDs. You won’t need to run ALL of these, nor can I guarantee these items won’t break something, ESPECIALLY if done improperly!  Note that some registry keys listed are specific to Windows XP.
