How To Enable Autorun for Other Removable Media Autorun can be enabled or disabled for all Removable media types, such as a floppy or Zip disk. Windows systems are configured to enable CD Notification, other removable media are by default disabled. The System Properties User interface only exposes the CD Enable or Disable selection. The setting reflected in this dialog makes an entry in the System Registry. It is in this same location that other media types are configured. Notes: Modifiying the Registry is not for the inexperienced user. Anyone will tell you, be VERY careful. The modifications made in this case use Hex not Decimal numbers. If you are unfamiliar with the Registry or the characteristics of base numbering and Hex, studying these topics prior to making these modifications is advisable. To Modify these Registry Settings, Use Regedit and navigate to the following Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Policies Explorer "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" The default value for the setting is 95 0 0 0. Change the first byte to 91. Restart the computer to make the new setting take effect. You may have to right-click on the floppy and choose AutoPlay from the menu to see the AutoPlay behaviour. Additional Technical Info The first byte defines which drive types to EXCLUDE from Autorun behaviour. The hex value of the byte is the sum of all of the drive type values to exclude + 128. DRIVE_UNKNOWN 1 DRIVE_NO_ROOT_DIR 2 DRIVE_REMOVABLE 4 (floppy disks and removable cartridges) DRIVE_FIXED 8 (hard disks) DRIVE_REMOTE 16 (network drives) DRIVE_CDROM 32 (CD-ROMs) DRIVE_RAMDISK 64 The default configuration excludes UNKNOWN (1), REMOVABLE (4) and REMOTE (16) which would be 16 + 4 + 1 + 128 = 149, which is hex 95. If you take out REMOVABLE you get 16 + 1 + 128 = 145, which is hex 91. The calculation for this value is 1 + 4 + 16 + 128 = 149. 149 Decimal is 95 Hex The new calculation is 1 + 16 + 128 = 145. 149 Decimal is 91 Hex You may have to restart for the system to recognize a floppy or Zip as an Auto play drive. If your floppy drive does not show a custom icon or AutoPlay in the menu when right-clicked, double-click on the icon for your computer on the desktop and press F5 to refresh the information in the Explorer window. Zips and floppies will not auto launch when media is inserted. You must double-click their icon or right-click and choose AutoPlay from the menu. hope this helps

Windows Vista's AutoPlay options are a great improvement over Windows XP in terms of flexibility, but unfortunately there are so many options that it can be confusing, especially since there's no specific mention of USB Flash drives in the options.
Open your Control Panel, and then click on "Play CDs or other media automatically" to open the AutoPlay dialog.
Disable AutoPlay Globally.
The quickest way to disable AutoPlay entirely is to just uncheck the box for "Use AutoPlay for all media and devices", which should usually work.
