Optical Drive(s) AutoPlay Not Working

    This is just frustrating me!!!! Whenever I insert a CD or a DVD into either of my optical drives (Sony DDU1621 DVD-ROM or Sony DWU14A DVD+/-RW) the AutoPlay function does not work. I have gone under the Properties for each drive and editted all the AutoPlay options, but AutoPlay does does work. I have even changed Properties to "Prompt me each time to choose an action" but I don't even get a prompt! WTFO??!! To play an audio CD, I have to open either Windows Media Player or Nero Media Player and select the drive to load the music. Same thing goes if I put in a DVD movie. These are not copied CDs or DVDs, actual store bought items. I have WinXP Home Edition SP2 installed. Any help would be appreciated.

    Try this:

    Start >

    Run >

    type regedit >

    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE >

    SYSTEM >

    CurrentControlSet >

    Services >

    Click Cdrom >

    Now find AutoRun, right click it, select Modify then change the value to 1.
