AutoRun/AutoPlay

Windows XP Home. When inserting Music CD or DVD disk into my CD/DVDRom drive The CD drive Properties screen appears asking me what action to take, “Play Audio CD using Windows Media Player” “Open Folder To View Files “Take no Action” etc. When I select any of the actions (Except “Take no Action”) Nothing happens! I have set my CD Drive “AutoPlay” to prompt me each time to choose an action. The computer recognises the Music/DVD and will play from the CD/DVD Drive but not from the “Select an action” screen. But I can view files and folders of a Data CD from the “Open Folder To View Files” Option.

Windows has just released an update to Stop Autoplay except direct from a CD/DVD this is to stop viruses on USB drives auto running when plugged into another PC

Thank you Fruit Bat. Will tick as resolved. Can now see the reasons for No Autostart/Autoplay
