This will fix your autoplay:

Activity light displays the hard drive activity, which means autoindexing is working.Also, the disk may need defragging.

Which will also make the laptop boot longer.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...

You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

Inspiron 1525 PC Notebook: can i use Dell Inspiron 1525 to burn dvds? How to ...

Hi Richard, yes you can burn DVDs with your laptop. Check the CD/DVD disc that came with your computer. However, I understand its pre-installed either with Roxio or Sonic utilities. On the other hand, if you have Vista and Windows 7 it will do as well.

Please comment if the information provided has been helpful for the improvement of my support assistance. Thank you and regards.

Cd/dvd help

did you remove the drive and reseat it back in the laptop, If that don't work You may have a virus and should run your antivirus software and antispy software. I have also seen where a cd gets stuck in the drive and you can't see it, it goes above the drive and gets stuck in there, Check that out. Let me know if that helps you out at all.
