If you right click on your CD-ROM drive in My Explorer and then its Properties, follow it up by clicking on the AutoPlay tab.

Choose how you want to configure your drive to do when a disk is inserted - it's XP's version of Auto Insert Notification.

Note that some burning programs, such as Nero, which control the operation of the drive(s) during a burning sequence prefer that AutoPlay is disabled.

That should be My Computer in above - typing too quickly..

You can also configure aspects of your CD/DVD-ROM drives and rewriters from Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices>Hardware tab>highlight your drive>Properties.

no its not that, when i put a cd in first time it doesnt work, when i reinsert it for a 2nd time it work (autoplays) because i first get a message saying, please insert a disk into d:/

I was looking for an answer to this problem myself but my version doesn't spot the reinserted disk - you have to reboot, then as long as there are cds in the drive on bootup, it finds them or changed ones for the rest of the session. I've installed XP autofix from MS that didn't help.
Any one got any better ideas?
