Windows 7: Autoplay Registry key value

Autoplay Registry key value

For several months I have lost the "Autoplay" function. I've checked that the "Autoplay" set up page is correct. I think the problem might be an incorrect value in the registry.
Please, would someone (or more than one!) who is running W7 64 bit AND has a working "Autoplay"; tell me what is the value of your registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveAutorun
My value is 91 (Hexdecimal)

That is the correct default value for that key.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=dword:00000091

Thanks "dwarf". Can you think of any other reason why I'm not getting autorun (on any type of input item (DVD, SD card, USB item))

Hello "Richnrockville"
You may have the key I mentioned. You need to get to "explorer" then left-click that word. A new pane will open (on mine) and "NoDriveAutoRun" will be revealed. My value is 0x00000091.

Thanks for that link "Bill2". It seems to be very through. I checked out each item and tried the suggested alterative registry settings. It did not solve the problem. The artical was intended for "vista" so that was perhaps why it did not fully cover all the possible reasons within W7. One registry setting it mentioned was a key which was said to nearby the "NoDriveTypeAutorun" and called "NoDriveAutoRun". I could not find that key. I even tried a search for it.

I searched the registry for nodrive and everything else and it was not found.

One thing in the back of my memory is that microsoft had an update to security
that had something to do with autorun. Not sure when I saw it but it was
lately.
