Windows 7: autoplay not working in windows 7 64 bit

autoplay not working in windows 7 64 bit

Hi Guys
I am having a problem with autoplay, it does not start to play any disk (CD-DVD-Blue ray) when it is inserted. I can get them all to play by opening VCL media player for CD and DVD, or PowerDVD 9.6 for Blue ray and selecting the disc, Media play does not see a disc installed at all. I have looked at and followed your tutorial on swiching autoplay on and off, which was very helpful in checking the settings in autoplay, but I have not managed to find the solution. I would be grateful for any suggestions to resolve this.

Thanks

Welcome to Seven Forums react0r1. Confirm you have seen both these tutorials

AutoPlay - Enable or Disable

AutoPlay - Enable or Disable for Non-volume Devices

I am unsure what all the reg files Brink provides do, so I'll also suggest you make sure the Shell Hardware Detection service is running.

Start> In search box type services.msc> Enter> Scroll down to Shell Hardware Detection, and make sure that it is Running, and the Startup Type is set to Automatic. If not, start the service and change the Startup Type.

Thanks A Guy

You were spot on, Shell hardware Detection was disabled, now set to automatic and all working correctly . Many thanks for simple to follow guidance you gave. I have another problem with the touch screen which I will post later.

Other solution is to search for and then run Microsoft Fix it 50475 which re- enables autorun for you.

Thank you,Thank you,Thank you,Thank you.
I've trying to fix this for a good part of a month.
Don't know how the Shell Hardware detection was disabled, but you were right on with the resolution.
