Windows 7: AutoPlay - Turn On or Off

Do you get a AutoPlay pop-up when you connect or insert other forms of devices/media?

If you have not already, see if turning off AutoPlay completely and turning back on may toggle it to work again.

In addition, double check with the tutorial below to see if your AutoPlay may have been disabled by using OPTION ONE to enable AutoPlay.

I get no pop-up dialog box at all. Will try the turn off and on later as I have to go right now.

Okay, I just turned off auto-play and disabled all sources of media, then rebooted and turned it back on and set all media to ask me every time, and it still does not give a pop-up. I guess the next thing to do is download some of those files and try them. Will wait for an answer from you first.

Sorry Dakota,

I meant to do step 2 in OPTION ONE instead.

That one I had already done. So guess I will try the file I downloaded. BTW, appreciate you hanging in with me on this.

Brink, thanks for all the help. I downloaded that file and merged it and ran it and it seems like all is well now. Thanks again.
