    The discs that I insert in either of my two DVD drives do not associate with the programs they used to. I have tried associating them again with Tools-Folder Options-File Types but nothing works. When I double click on the drives they just go to the Explorer window showing the files on the disc but not playing them, both (CD and DVD). There are no icons when I insert a disk either, it just shows either Audio CD or the DVD name but no association icon.

    Oh, if I restart with discs in the drive the icons will show up and go to the correct application when I double-click but if I eject the discs it goes right back to the above action.

    Can someone help please?
