    Default autorun in W7 not working

    I'm going mad here. I'm trying to make a CD which will open by itself. It used to be easy in XP but no longer. Even discs that were given out with PCWorld don't work. They still do in XP but not in any of our 3 W7 ones.

    Does anyone else have this problem? Or a solution?

    Try this.

    To set autoplay defaults in Windows7, do the following:
    1.Click the Start button, type auto, and click on Autoplay
    2.When the autoplay screen comes up, select which programs or actions you would like to take for each media type
    Intel i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad Core, Asus P8Z 68-V LE MB, GTX 560 TI 1GB DDR5 graphics card, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, 8gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 ram , Viewsonic VX2233WM LCD 1080P HD Monitor. Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 64MB Sata3 HD

    As Trev says but check top left cnr (Use autoplay for all media) and make sure you save it (bottom R Cnr).

    Have a look here it's for Vista originally, but updated to W7.
