Windows 7: Install DVDs won't autoplay

Install DVDs won't autoplay

Movies autoplay fine as well as CDs, but if I insert a DVD to install a new program, it just won't autoplay. I have gone to the control panel and set it to autoplay all media as well as to autoplay install DVDs, but it doesn't make a difference. WIndows 7 Home Premium 64bit. If anyone has an answer I'd appreciate knowing. Thanks.

Is it all install dvds or just one? I have had some dvd that won't auto start.

Try also right clic on DVD in Explorer and choose open Autoplay and you should have the option to choose Autoplay.
