Autoplay and DVD RW drive?



My DVD±RW drive show up as a CD RW drive on my Dell computer. This isn’t a big concern to me as the DVD RW drive plays and burns DVD’s just fine. Main problem is the Autoplay feature doesn’t work on either the CD or DVD drives. I have tried the Autofix.exe from microsoft, checked the registry for proper values found on Google, uninstalled the devices and reinstalled them, and have had no luck. :doh:

Autofix.exe say it finds a problem but cannot fix it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.


Be happy that autoplay won’t work, it can easily infiltrate your system with malware, trojans and viruses.

“CD-drive” is only cosmetical, a bug in the explorer.
