    I would like DVDs to autostart using Power DVD when I insert them. This used to work but stopped suddenly. Anyone know how to get it going again?

    Yes. I think it is a Windows problem and not a PowerDVD problem. This feature used to work and then stopped suddenly. I install and deinstall a lot of software and I'm pretty sure that one of the install/deinstalls caused this problem.

    Try Control Panel-> Folders Options-> File Types. Find DVD Video, hit Advanced and enter the proper info.

    See attachment, or try uninstalling reinstalling PDVD.

    I had already checked this and it is correctly configured to play DVD Video with PowerDVD.

    If the above doesn't cure then try Tweak Ui which has a setting for autoplay.
