Windows 7: Auto-Run not working on DVD/BD drives, able to burn media from drive.

Auto-Run not working on DVD/BD drives, able to burn media from drive.

Hi all,

I am having an issue with my pc as my LG BD burner drive and Asus DVD burner drive do not prompt the pop-up box to ask if I want to explore the disc once inserted. Windows explorer shows a disc icon, however when I click on it all it does is prompts to insert a disc and opens the tray. I have reset the Auto-Run settings in Control Panel over and over, no luck. Went into Device Manager and deleted both drives, restarted pc, it added them, still no luck. I burned a music disc no problem yesterday, yet explorer cannot browse the drives. Went to the registry to make sure the Auto-Run settings were enabled, no problem there. Confused on what the problem might be........

This might or might not work for you -- have you assigned a unique name and assigned a drive letter to both of those cd/dvd reader/writers? Sometimes that works to smooth things over. My desktop has both a cd\dvd reader/writer and a BluRay reader-cd\dvd reader/writer. After doing the above-mentioned -- the autorun appears to almost always work smoothly.

Well, they definitely have their own drive letters. The names are anything special, just what Windows calls them. I didn't know you can rename the optical drives, will have to try that.

You are correct! I forgot cd\dvd devices have their own names - don't try to change them.
I was lumping flash drives and cd\dvd devices together - my bad.
