Problems using media drives with WIN7 explorer 64-bit

RECENT PROBLEMS REQUIRING A FIX 1. Although the Autoplay is selected as default, neither my DVD/CD Drive NOR MY Blue Ray drive will autoplay. They require to be opened manually. 2. I am unable to use Drag-and-Drop in Windows Explorer to copy files to a removable disc OF ANY TYPE/BRAND, yet both drives will successfully PLAY from any media source. 3. The Right-hand mouse click no longer shows the normal options. This situation applies irrespective of which mouse I use. For example, when I load OR try to copy files to a new disc, I get a message panel telling me the disc is not recognised and asking for it to be formatted....yet the format command has disappeared from the r/h mouse click.

There are several reasons for this problem. AutoPlay might be restricted by Group Policy, it could be canceled by a program that is running, or the service that AutoPlay needs to start might not be running. Check if AutoPlay is restricted by Group Policy. Close other programs that might be interfering by accessing the device or media directly. Run the command prompt as Admin then type net start shellhwdetection, and then press Enter.

Restart your computer.
