Whenever I put in a CD Rom in my E drive, it never autoruns, and I sometimes am not sure which icon to use to install the program. I have gone to Device Manager tab, then highlight CD Rom drive, click on + sign, hit properties button. Then select settings tab, and check there is a tick in auto-insert box, whichj there is,and click o.k. However it is obviously not working, any suggestions? Thanks Kevin

I am not sure why that is not working. If the auto-insert notification is on, it should auto-run. But only if the cd-rom has auto-run capability. Some cd's do not have the autorun files.

My suggestion is download TweakUI and try to control the cd-rom feature from it. You can download tweakui here:
ftp://ftp.creativelement.com/pub/win98ann/tweakui98.zip

To install it, just right-click on the tweakui.inf file and choose "install".

From there, you will need to find the section that talks about cd-roms and auto-run. Unfortunately, I don't have it installed on this computer, so can't tell you first-hand how to get to it.

Or, you can always just double-click my computer, then double-click your cd-rom to start your auto-run program.

Here is how to do it with TweakUI:

Click the Paranoia Tab.

Check the boxes that say:
Play audio cd's automatically
Play data cd's automatically.

Be sure to reboot.
If they are already checked, uncheck them, reboot, then recheck them, reboot and see what happens.

Hey Alex:

You are right... it is easy when the Micro$oft stuff works right. We all know how to turn auto-notification on. But... what to do when it DOESN'T work even when auto-notification is enabled? Thus my previous post. Perhaps you should read more carefully before attacking.
