    HI, i just built a PC that runs Windows XP a couple weeks ago, since then when i put a CD in my DVD/CD-RW(Samsung) it never runs the autorun file, i'm wondering is this a kinda error from my OS installation or i have to do some set up to enable that.

    Can anyone tell me how to make application CD that has autorun file run automatically when i insert a CD into my CD Drive?

    Thanks in advance

    Go Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager and set the Properties of the CD drive concerned.

    Once you follow Saga's directions, go the cd drive location in the device manager list, then click it and select properties, then choose 'Enable' that drive from there.
