Windows 7: CD-DVD rw will not auto run (register seems corrupt)

CD-DVD rw will not auto run (register seems corrupt)

Win 7 32bit SP1 fully updated .
Search MSC > service status > running > start up type Automatic.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>System>Current control set>>services>Cdrom.

This is what i see ,
Default REG_SZ (Value not set)
AutoRun REG_DWORD 0x0000000(1)
Autorun always REG_Multi SZ Nec MBR_7 NEC MBR-7.4 Pioneer change
Display Name REG_SZ CD Rom Driver
Driver package ID REG_SZ cdrom.inf_x86_neutral_db87d184bc84f910
Error control REG_SZ 0x00000001(1)
Group REG_SZ scsi cdrom class
Imagepath REG_Expand_SZ system32\drivers\cdrom.sys
Start REG_DWORD 0x00000001(1)
Tag REG_DWORD 0x00000003(3)
Type REG_DWORD 0x00000001(1)

Brand new cd-dvd rw replaced 2 days ago as i thought the old one was cactus , not the case,
CD rom is recognized , just wont run or play , it shows the music files only , i used a program cd and executed program from cd file directory ,SO it works .
My initial thoughts are that the register is corrupt ,but i want touch it untill i have confirmation .
Any assistance would be great.

May be you just need to turn it back on: AutoPlay - Turn On or Off

My reg file looks the same as yours, except for the Driver ID because I'm running x64bit and you have x32bit.

Thanks for reviewing ANAK, i know terminolagy may be confusing between auto run and auto play !!
Autoplay is turned on ,check box upper L/H checked, drop down boxes are listed and window saved.
Issue is that when inserting media to the CDROM drive the files will not execute. No pop up window appears seeking verification.
I can accesss the CDROM drive only via (MY Computer) and music files ,but the files can not be read.A small WMP window appears and refuse to play files .
As stated CDROM drive is new and has been tested ,MicrosoftFixit Media player has confirmed Media player is fine Microsoft Fixit CDrom has confirmed CDrom is fine and working ?????
This is my conundrum >>>

Additional info re issue . attatched is a snip of another regedit view which could be compromised creating my issue.
Could someone kindly confirm their actual snip of same reg view .
Im thinking that my value (No drive Type AV reg_DWORD 0x000000dd(221) is the issue
im thinking that my value should read (91)
Slightly cut off the No 221 in snapshot view oops.

Have you tried another music CD? Maybe the one you are trying is bad? Is this a commercial audio CD or one that has been burned? If its one that has been burned is it a CD-R or a CD-RW? If it's an RW the disc is probably trashed, RW discs have a history of losing format and/or data.

Now this is where we differ:

Are you working off of this? The AutoRun feature or the AutoPlay feature does not work when you insert a CD-ROM in the CD drive

To add to fireberd's reply; In order for auto run to work the inserted disk has to have the autorun/play file on it in order to auto run. If these are disks that you burned were their burning sessions closed properly?

May I ask the make/model of the CD/DVD drive and how did you install it?

I am a little leery of your working with the registry, have you made a backup of it before you started messin' around with it? Registry - Backup and Restore

There are two ways of solving this by giving us more information on what may be causing this problem for you, if by trying these two methods and you receive error messages, please post those errors.

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\Hardware and Sound and use the Playing and burning troubleshooter,

another way would be: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup I mention this because some software applications, especially disc image editing programs and virtual drive utilities such as Roxio, Nero, PowerISO, MagicISO, Alcohol 120%, and even some other programs such as Rhapsody, MotoHelper, Motorola driver software, antivirus software and various VMWare virtualization products like VMWare Server and VMWare Workstation will cause conflicts with AutoPlay functionality.

If you insist it is a registry problem there is a possible Registry fix at this tutorial, Option Two: AutoPlay - Turn On or Off

Back in the day might even been Vista, optical drives depended on high and low filters, but not 7. Check this key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DeviceDisplayObjects\SetupClassInformation\{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} there shouldn't be any there.

You can enter {4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} into the find function to help find it faster.

I see your running AVG can you check this area of it? Its the only area i can think of, if you can think of others within AVG check them also.

Just to make sure AVG isn't blocking the optical drive, its under Parental Controls.
