Hey fellow freaks, I’ve been away for a few months and it’s good to be back! I’ve been trying to modify the Windows XP Autoplay handlers in order to have PowerDVD autoplay entries for HD-DVD and Blu-Ray media upon insertion but without success. So far every time an HD-DVD movie is inserted I get a blank Autoplay window (see attachment below). When a Blu-Ray disc is inserted I get no autoplay at all; a windows explorer window opens to browse the contents of the Blu-ray disc. Autoplay works well for all other media types.
I searched through the appropriate autoplay locations in the registry but there was no media type for HD-DVD, so I don’t know where the blank autoplay window for that media type comes from!
I also used Autoplay Repair and TweakUI bu they only allow manipulation of the handlers. There is no option to create a new autoplay media type with either of these programs, you can only add/remove/edit handlers to existing pre-defined media types. Any ideas?
By the way, my OS is WinXP SP2 x64
Thanks in advance for any replies
