Windows 7: bluray autoplay behavior

bluray autoplay behavior

Hello all, So I have autoplay turned off(set to Take no action) for everything in Win7, yet when I pop a bluray movie in it starts up Power dvd and proceeds to play the movie. However if I put a regular dvd in nothing happens as it should. Why is the bluray autoplaying when I've set the system to take no action? Any suggestions?

Just check your autoplay settings again. I assume Power DVD simply overrides the autoplay options an activates by itself because it's set to be the default player to play blue-rays.

Click Start and type in Autoplay, choose it from the list of search results. When a new window opens, just uncheck the very first option "Use AutoPlay for all media and devices" instead of going through each and choosing to take no action, because that means that AutoPlay is still always active on your system, even though set not to do anything. So just turn it off completely.

I already did that. I mentioned that in the first sentence of my post.

In that case, try the "reset to defaults button" and make sure you still keep the first option unchecked.

No joy. Still exact same behavior.

Well, the only other thing that comes to mind is to check the PowerDVD settings and see if there's anything in there that can help you. I wouldn't be surprised if PowerDVD just overrides autoplay options and does what it wants xD

Is PowerDVD running in the background?

Not anymore. I disabled it in the startup options, but didn't do it for this reason. I was just seeing if I had anything running at startup I didn't need to start up with Windows. Wow, that was the problem. Thanks. I just popped a bluray in a no autoplay.

That seems like a security issue wouldn't it? Is that a MS issue or Power DVD issue?
