Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Autoplay
If nothings greyed out you shouldn't have to resort to regedit.

Also, checking the option in the image below should have the same effect as using GPEDIT

I've just found an old thread Here which outlines a registry solution.

Quote:
Open regedit and navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

and then,

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Here you will find a key called "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" and probably set to 255. THATS THE PROBLEM.

Double click, change this to 145, then hit OK. Immediately you can plug in your USB or whatever other media ... and Notice autoplay is back!

If you want to enable autoplay foy ANY type of media what-so-ever, set it to 0 instead. Use 149 for Win XP.

Credit for this fix goes to a google search of mine, that landed on this thread. Next time I"m just gonna come here and search!!

Changing certain registry settings can make your system unresponsive. Please make sure that you only change what is required, and nothing else.

Does the CD suport autorun? Does it have an autorun.inf file in its root directory?
