Hi,

To resolve this problem, you will have to assign the default action for each type of disk that you try to play in the disk drive.

To do this, right-click on the icon for "CD drive" in "My Computer" and select "Properties"

Then click on "Autoplay" tab. (See attached image)

Then select the type of files "Music, video, Mixed content,etc" from the drop-down menu and click on "Select an Action to Perform"

Then in the options window, choose "Play with Windows Media Player" and click on the "Apply" and "OK" buttons.

Repeat the step for other disk types.

Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Similarly, select other content types from the drop-down menu as shown in the attached image and choose the default action for that content type.










    Thanks again.

    Many thanks for the feedback.



    Actually, this method to enable "AutoPlay" feature is the usual method to enable AutoPlay.



    For more advanced options, kindly refer to this article on Microsoft website.



    Thanks again.

I put the cd rom into the drive and nothing happens. I go to click on the icon under my computer and it causes the window not to respond.


Confirm that the CD drive is not a CD-ROM dive and the CD you are trying to open is is not a DVD. CD-ROM drive wil not open a DVD ROM and in some cases will cause the system to stop responding if youtry to run it.

CD Disk Drive E doesn't want to open


Right click on "My Computer" and press "Device Manager". See if your CD drive appears in there. If it does, delete it and re-boot. The PC should find the CD as a new device and re-install standard drivers for it. Hope this helps. Ian.

This sounds like a samsung drive, the laser is probably dead or on its way out or it could also be the small belt that is stretched and to weak to shut the drive properly, either way the machine will need to be stripped down and repaired.

My dell 3000 wont play games


If the cd is not starting on its own, click on "My Computer" then click the drive letter the cd is in. This will usually launch the installer. If not look for a setup.exe or installer.exe file after double clicking the cd's drive letter.

Hope this helps

I have a game called world of warcraft when i put the disc in nothing happens you need 20g and i have 37g wats the problem.


Go to "my computer"
In there you will see an icon at the cd-rom drive for WOW.
(WOW = World of Warcraft)
Double click on that Icon
This will start the installer.
If you do not see an icon take out the CD and clean the drive and look at the CD or significant scratches. Little ones are okay.

Jammed cd drive


  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.
