View Full Version : CD Drive wont auto run

I can normally just put a CD in the drawer, and it auto runs. For some reason it no longer does this,the drawer opens when I press the button but closes instantly before I can put the CD in. Its a ATAPI CD-ROM 52X if that helps. I think I must have pressed the wrong button, as a screen popped up telling me that windows could open it as pictures each time, can you please advise how to fix it.My system is Windows XP recently installed and still trying to master it!!

Go into my computer right-click on the CDROM drive enter it's properties.

Click on the autoplay tab and there are options in a drop down menu. Just change it to suit your needs.

Thanks for that, it now brings up what is on the CD,(I changed the setting to mixed content).The drawer still shuts as soon as I open it though, it stays open on the second try, any idea what might be causing that?
