My operating system is WinXP Pro. I have two DVD+RW/-RW/CD dual layer drives connected to the secondary IDE port. Both drives used to autorun CD's when installed, but now, neither drive recognizes the autorun feature of CD's. I knew where the switch was when I used Win98, but I can't locate it in WinXP. Can someone point me to this switch? I would like to restore this feature to both drives. Thanks.

Thanks for that info, but I have already created my associations. The problem seems to be that neither drive reads the CD until I select a file with the "Run" command or from the file manager. They don't see the "autorun.inf" files and respond to them. They don't open music files (even though associations have been set). An application CD does not run the "Setup" file automatically. None of my CD's will automatically start when inserted.

With Win98, I could set this feature in the properties page of the drive in Device Manager, but I don't find this capability in WinXP.
