My PC is running Windows XP Professional. I have some how disabled Auto Play for my CD Burner (D:\) and my DVD drives (E:\). No matter what I do, I cannot seem to enable Auto Play. I have tried using the option in TweakUI for XP to no avail. Where else should I be checking these settings ?

Hi, I've had this problem twice in XP Home (pre SP1). It would happen after my kids played their Harry Potter Game (DVD) that came with the movie. I was able to get autoplay back to working, but I not sure while this works. I went to Start/run/regedit. Went to: My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Cdrom . Click on Autorun, there is a value of 1. Retype over the 1 with a 1 (same value) click ok. Exit the registry and reboot. A word of caution; when ever you change the registry you should have good backups, in case you can't restart your machince. You can export the registry and save it . I Myself I use Norton Ghost which backs up the whole Drive. Thats program I've used to restore my harddrive on several occasion. Here also a site here that might help:

right click on the drive in 'my computer' then select the 'autoplay' tab and change the settings there
