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.
  1. Modifiying the Registry is not for the inexperienced user. Anyone will tell you, be VERY careful.
  2. 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:
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 behavior.

    Go to My Computer.

    Right click on DVD icon.

    Click Properties.

    And go to autoplay.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 18, 2008

    Try downloading Tweak UI from Microsoft (free) and checking your Autoplay settings are correct.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 18, 2008

    go to ur registry... HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\CDRom

    and value was set to 0, so manually set it to 1 and it must work.

Pioneer dvd recorder dvr-530H

The EPG is the electronic program guide trying to download TV listings.

This is normal for this player. To disable this, you would need to turn off the TV guide function.

Pioneer dvr player will not reconize disk when inserted in player...will not read it..

I bought some off brand rw-dvd's and the Pioneer would not recogzine them. The Maxell and the Sony work great. No problem with the r-dvd's.

Mine quit working completely, it keep opening and shutting itself and this morning it was opened when I got up and when I closed it the dvd hung up in it. This is the second time for the hangup and I had to take it apart to get the dvd out both time. This time it stopped working altogether. It just says Load across the front.

Hope this helps you.

Hard drive shows full even after erasing 120 hours.

You should empty the recycled bin in the system and delete all temporary files on it.

Dvd recorder wont finalize etc

The DVD drive works harder when trying to record the info faster. As the unit ages, tracking is less precise. DVD-R copies occur at 4-16X real time. Try DVD-RW disks which copy slower (now that the price has dropped substantially), and you may find that your aging drive can still copy programs from the HD to the DVD.
