    I just got a Samsung DVD/CD+RW and it's been working great. However, one thing bugs me. AutoPlay will not work with it. I have options in the drive's properties menu to choose what actions the drive should take when a media CD is installed. I have it set so that any type of media is AutoPlay. There're no options for data discs. However, no matter what kind of disc, from movie to Windows XP nothing happens. I have to open up My Computer and then browse for the autoplay. It is quite annoying. Any help on fixing this problem would be much appreciated, thanks.

    Autoplay, Autorun, two different things. Read through this:Microsoft 330135
