Windows : Autorun is Disabled?  

Here is a solution for the Geeks; it modifies the Windows registry:

  1. Start RegEdit (regedt32.exe).2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Services/Cdrom.3. Edit the Autorun value to '1' to enable autorn, and '0'   to disable autorun.4. Close RegEdit.

NOTE: You may have to restart the system.

A simpler solution (not guaranteed to work if autorun has been disabled in the registry, as in my case) is:

  1. Right-click on the drive.2. Choose properties.3. Choose Autoplay.4. Choose the action you want to take for various file types.
