Windows 7: Autoplay only works on guest account.

25 May 2013   #1

32 bit windows 7
Autoplay doesnt work on guest account.

Posted a thread before but it was poorly worded and in the wrong section. Anyways, can rip and play cd's no worries on the admin account, however on the guest account you cant play music at all. even directly clicking on the cd in my computer only reveals 1kb files names track 1, 2 3... etc and not the name of the song. Ive done some research and ive made sure the shell hardware thingo is on automatic and autoplay is set to the correct settings. I dont understand whats going on, coz the whole account its running as an admin account.

It would appear that no one is able to help you. I looked into the problem, albeit was unable to create the problem you are having. What you could do is go into the tutorial section of the Seven Forums to see if there is a tutorial that may be of some help. . .Good luck, and sorry I was unable to help. . .
