Windows 7: Windows7-Autorun

OK, if you can’t do it via the control panel, as you suspected, a registry fix may indeed be called for. Before editing the registry, it is recommended that you back up your registry and create a system restore point as shown here:

System Restore Point - Create

Registry - Backup and Restore

The first key you need to check is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\cdrom
Make sure that the AutoRun key is set to a value of 1 as seen in screenshot (note red dots). If not, double click on the key name (AutoRun), and in the editable field, replace 0 with 1. Click OK, close out the registry, log off and back on.
Does this help, or was the value already set to 1? If so, are you using any 3rd party burning software (ie, Nero, etc.)?

My previous post has been edited to include the left-out key name. Re-read for correction.

You state that it was working previously…let’s backtrack for a moment. If this is a recent development, you could perform a System Restore using a restore point that pre-dates the problem:

System Restore

No restore points pre-dating or doesn’t fix the problem?

Try:

Winkey|type ‘services.msc’ (w/o quotes)
Ctrl+shift+enter (type in admin password if asked)
Scroll down to ‘Shell Hardware Detection’
Looking at the coluimn headers:
Under status, it should say ‘Started’,
Under startup Type, it should say ‘Automatic'.
If not, double click on the name (Shell Hardware Detection) and change the settings to the above, as in screenshot.

If all is well there:

Again, open regedit (assuming you’ve backed it up) and navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Check that the value of NoDriveTypeAutoRun (if it exists) is 0×00000091
If you you find the key: NoDriveAutoRun, you can delete it.

I did try all those setting. The only way i can open a CD/DVD is to go to my computer.

Your NoDrivetypeAutoRun entry is likely the problem here (see screenshot of your screenshot, note the red dots) . Change it to the value stated above (0×00000091). You will only have to enter the term 91, not the whole string. Log off, log back on and see what happens. If that doesn't resolve the problem, navigate back to the same key and change the value to '0', then log off and on again.

Now that auto run is finally working, it should present you the option to run the executable (as it is in your screenshot...), or you can boot from it, but you don't really "need" autorun, as you can just access the disc via Windows Explorer, as you have done already. Is your system in need of a repair install, startup repair or are you just being prepared?
