Autorun is a feature of Windows XP that brings up a screen with actions that the user can perform any time a storage device or piece of media is inserted into a computer. This feature can be disabled by changing a value in the system registry. If the Autorun feature is not working on your Windows XP system, fix the computer so that the Autorun options will be displayed when a USB device is connected.
Select the "Start" button and choose "Run." Type "regedit" (no quotation marks) and click "OK." Click on the key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutorun" in the left side of the window. Right-click on the value "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" in the right side of the window. Select "Modify" from the menu. Enter "91" into the "Value data" box. Select "Hexadecimal" as the type. Click "OK" to enable Autorun on all types of drives, including USB devices. Close the registry editor and reboot the computer. Hope this helps.
