    It is any disc that is placed in and yes auto play is set.

  • travisgonzal Apr 21, 2009

    I tried it and an error box popped up and said that the auto play wizard has stopped working and then it closes.

    Do you have your CD set to play in auto play?

The fastest and easiest way to find out what is going on is to do this: go to search.microsoft.com; in Search box search for "AutoPlay Repair Wizard". Click download and run..takes about 30 seconds. It will check all of the files and settings for auto play and fix them automatically if needed. If it doesn't find anything then it shows your drives and let's you select the drive you are having problems with, ie. D:>; then you can insert a CD and it will follow it and fix anything that is not working..good utility to have around and its free..if you have any questions let me know.
Pls rate this solution.

    OK did the error message say anything and are you sure you had it on the D: drive versus the C:..what software are you using to burn cds and can you burn/write something to a blank disc..

When I insert a disk nothing happens, it makes really loud noises asif its about to take off. This carrys on and my computer does not recognise there has been a disk inserted.


The driver for your CD-ROM needs to be UPDATED. click start, then control panel, click performance and maintenance, then click system, click the hardware tab, then click DEVICE MANAGER.under the CD/DVD ROM DRIVES, your CD-ROM should be listed. It may have a "?" mark or "!" to show the driver is out of date. If so, then right click on the device, click the "driver" tab, and click update driver. If the driver is updated, but the CD-ROM is still not functioning, follow the same steps, however; when you right click the device and enter the properties, instead of entering driver, click the "PROPERTIES TAB: and UN-CHECK the box in the DIGITAL CD PLAYBACK. If that does not work, then search online for a driver that is compatable with your windows system,

DVD/CD ROM does not open


There should be a small hole on the front panel of the DVD-ROM. Take a paper clip and insert it into the hole and push to open the tray. If the DVD-ROM tray continues to malfunction, you'll need to replace it. DVD-ROMS run anywhere from $25.00 to $75.00.
