Just a small problem here, but try as hard as I might, I can't figure it out. :confused:

When I put in a DVD or CD into each respective drives, the computer does not have a pop-up window that asks me what I want to do with the disk in the tray. It use to. Now nothing happens when I put in a disk. How can it be fixed so that little window comes back each time a disk is put in?

I know both drives work. Once I open Windows Media Player I can find and play the disk. The pop-up window use to ask me which program I want to use, and for what action... play, rip, burn, etc. It gave a list of all the programs available to perform these actions.

Click on My Computer.

Right-click your DVD drive.

Click Properties.

Click the AutoPlay tab.

I tried that and it still doesn't work. I have tried it before too. This time I even clicked on each "content type" in the drop-down list and "prompt me each time to choose an action" and then the "Apply" button. Still it won't work. :( And I did this for both drives.

Maybe THIS can help?

Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

Restart the computer.

If the fix only opens as a text file (in Notepad), right-click the file (before opening it) and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.
