    I can't get CDs to autorun, i'v tried right clicking the drive, auto play tab then picking actions for different types of content, that didn't work. I'v tried looking at the registery and autorun is set to 1, the tutorial i was reading said change it to 0 to turn it off so i'm guessing my one is set to on. I'v also tried tweak UI, but auto run is already on. Auto run has never worked, anyone got any ideas?

    get this program called tweak all

    (best program because it doesnt run in the background or in your startup)

    [​IMG]

    it makes the needed registry changes to fix problems

    Tweak all didn't change anything.

    Windows XP autorun repair found a problem with something called 'Autoplay v2' but when it tried to fix it i got the message 'This AutoPlay setting cannot be fixed. Either the device is malfunctioning, or the wizard cannot determine the problem.'

    See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q155217

    Which states:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
    2. Locate and click the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom
    3. To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1.

    Did you checkout the Additional Information?

    There are two other registry keys that can affect this functionality:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    NoDriveTypeAutoRun = 0x00000095

    -and-
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    NoDriveTypeAutoRun = 0x00000095

    Maybe the registry key was not setup properly, try this again:

    [Start] [Run] [Regedit]
    Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdrom
    Modify/Create the Value Data Type(s) and Value Name(s) as detailed below.
    Data Type: REG_DWORD [Dword Value] // Value Name: AutoRun
    Setting for Value Data: [0 = AutoRun Disabled / 1 = AutoRun Enabled]
    Exit Registry and Reboot
