Actually, scrap what I said about my MP4 player not alerting autoplay, I had 'Take no action' selected for 'Mixed content'.
that maybe a good point for the OP to check LilDom
He said he had everything listed as 'Open in explorer', so my first comment is not needed

Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\AutoPlay and check Use autoplay for all media and devices.
Also, at the bottom of this page, click Reset to Defaults.

I finally got it working:

Disable autoplay completely in control panel and via administrative template


Enable both and set NoDriveAutoRun to 0x91 in Registry (was not present)


The 2nd reboot might not be necessary.

HUGE FYI: You do realize that Microsoft disabled this for major security concerns. This is why they made it difficult to turn back on. It may get turned back on automatically in the future with Windows Updates. Microsoft found this to be such a concern they disabled it in Windows XP -- to --> Windows 7.

Yes, I understand the risk. I've chosen all action to open in Explorer. This is mostly used to transfer files.
