Help

My CDs (music and data) used to auto load when put into the CD / DVD drive and now they don't - probably more secure but why has this happened? How do I restart the auto load feature? I have tried right clicking the drive icon and playing with the auto play settings there but still no auto load. I run XP.

Thanks in advance. :)

Open up My Computer
Right-Click on your CD-ROM Drive that wont autoload
Choose Properties

There should be a tab called Autorun or Autoload - Click it.

From there, you have a drop-down menu up the top, select the type of contect the CD has you wish to autoload, and then select the desired action :-)

Hope this helps


Chill.

Thanks parry and Chilling_Silently

Still won't autoload after selecting the drive and right clicking and choosing CD content etc.. Suspect I should have a look at the registry per parry's article link. Thanks for the help. :)

in my opinion i think the autoload is rather annoying, if ur in a game of cs and u want to listen to a CD then it minimizes and u have no sound

Auto load is dangerous if you are burning a lot so is best left off

Whats burning got to do with autoload? You can hold down the Shift Key for a couple of secs when closing tray and it over-rides Autoload.
