Thread: Powerdvd 8

    Default Powerdvd 8

    Does anyone who uses powerdvd 8 know how to stop it autoplaying everytime I mount an .iso file or insert a dvd?

    I want to just use the codecs etc but I don't want powerdvd to autoplay anything.
    There are no settings in powerdvd 8 to do this like there are in 7.

    Anyone else having this issue, for instance if you want to mount the movie in daemon tools and play within mediaportal?

    To stop the drive from auto playing, try this - when loading a DVD, hold down the Shift key, that kills the auto play.

    What you can also do is go into My Computer/Right click the DVD drive/ Properties/Auto Play Tab/ select in the drop down box DVD Then Select prompt me each time to chose action OR the program you want open a DVD.

    You could disable AutoRun on your computer totally but that would be bit of a sledgehammer approach as compared to what WT has suggested.
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.

    I'm pretty sure v8 does have a setting to not automatically play the movie on insert. I have autoplay off, but i'm sure I also unchecked an option either on install or in the options. I'll see if I can find it when I finish work.

    In the Options, it looks like it's under "Player", "Advanced...", "File Association".

    From the manual:

    When any of the selected file formats in the file association list are
    double-clicked on your computer, CyberLink PowerDVD will launch
    automatically and play it back.
    Play automatically upon inserting disc: select this option for
    CyberLink PowerDVD to be launched automatically when a disc
    is inserted into the disc drive.
    Launch CyberLink PowerDVD and play when double-clicking
    an IFO file: select this option to set CyberLink PowerDVD as the
    default player for IFO files.
