OK, so I'm not sure why this is happening...
For some reason it seems that autorun prompts are entirely disabled on my laptop, I'll put in a CD and nothing happens, I plug in a hard drive and nothing happens, etc. I don't get the options window like I did before I did a clean install.
I even did a reset of the settings:
And that didn't help. I set them all to "Ask me every time", but still, nothing.
Another question I had... Once I GET autorun working, is there a way to add an option to the list of choices? I use Media Player Classic for video DVDs, and in XP I actually HAD that on the list - but for some reason it's not there anymore. It just has WMP, VLC, and a couple other ripping programs I have installed. I want to have the option to play my DVDs with MPC - right now I have to keep manually opening MPC and doing it.
