    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
