I replaced the two DVD burners in two different machines with Pioneer DVR-112D drives. I have ultra data cables.
The drives work great except none of the four will autoplay. I tried everything incl. Microsoft autofix and Tweak.
I have had no bad burns but without the autoplay I cannot play videos.
The old drives all worked fine for autoplay but I wanted the faster and supposedly better drives.
I have Windows XP home with SP2 and Pent Celeron 3.46 and 3.2 ghz machines.

have you connected the 4 pin molex plug from the computer mainboard to the drive ?
is the IDE Cable correctly fitted ?
did you set the jumper connector on the rear of the drive to Master Or Slave ? if you are sharing the cable with a hard-drive, and the hard-drive jumper is set to slave, then the dvd will have to be set As Master ( otherwise they conflict ) or only 1 device will be recognised.
This should Solve your problem here.

Check with a NEW PC - DVD Cable, if it is NOT that.. then I am sorry, but I reckon it's gone faulty somehow?
Especially if it causes the PC to not boot.
This is a common occurrence, even for NEW units..
