Of course, you are aware that the source of the problem is not <i>entirely</i> due to WinXP (mostly, but not completely), but because of a background service or program that is interfering with AutoPlay, as mentioned in the MSLB article? In other words; it's something that you've installed since the initial installation of the OS that raises a compatiblity issue.
I've seen people online complaining about this problem with Pioneer A06 DVD drives and InCD 4, for instance. An update to the drives firmware, and an update to the burning software might help correct the problem. Changing to another brand of media might also be a partial solution.
Older versions of Easy CD Creator also caused a similar problem.
Well that file didnt help anything really. Now i get the proper icon in my computer but I still dont get autoplay. I dont have a CD burner so I dont have any of that software installed. I dont know what else would be causing this problem. Anyone have an idea??
2.) Uninstalling the drive and the IDE controller in the Device Manager, rebooting, and allowing Windows to redetect the devices.
3.) Installing the latest chipset drivers.
4.) If the Autoplay tab is missing from the DVD-ROM's properties sheet under My Computer, ensure that Shell Hardware Detection is started and set on Automatic in Administrative Tools > Services. If necessary, run REGEDIT from the Start/Run line, and make sure that this key is found:
AutoRun=1 .... (or 0x00000001, with the "Type" being a REG-DWORD value, and the 0x00000001 being 1 in hexadecimal.)
