Are you using XP?
Are you using Home or Pro?

Couple of ways of doing this:

If you are using XP pro:

Click Start | Run
Type in GPEDIT.MSC

Go to Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System.

Locate the entry for Turn autoplay off and modify it as you desire


If you are using XP home(works for Pro too)

Go to Start | Run

Type in regedit

Find the following Key in the left pne

Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE\MicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion\
policies\NoDriveTypeAutoRun


In the right pane, Right-click on NoDriveTypeAutoRun in the Name column on the right and clicke Delete.

Restart your computer.

Autorun should now be enabled
