PostSubject: How to off / on the Autoplay CD Feature in Win XP   Wed 02 Jun 2010, 12:33 pm

The Autoplay CD feature

Win XP launches every time you put a cd in and each time it will ask

which application or which way you would want to view this cd you

installed. Now, this is a great function if you just use your CD

occasionally, but when I was installing all my programs on my Win XP

the Autoplay thing got on my nerves in a big way. Here's the best
way to

handle the Autoplay also allows you to customize how

will function.

  • Go to "My Computer"

  • Go to your CD Rom Drive

  • Right Click and go to


  • The window above will open, click the autoplay


  • Once there they give you a number of options. In

    the box just below "Select a content type..." you can select the

    file types that autoplay will run for. This is good if you want

    customize your autoplay. If for example whenever a music cd is
    put in you

    want it to play automatically you just fill in the box that says:

    an action to perform---> Select play--->Hit Apply. Now
    whenever you put

    in a music cd it will autoplay in Windows Media player. If you
    don't want

    XP to take any action, just select "Take No Action" hit apply, and
    do that

    for all the media types that's available in that box.

  • This is the way you

    could customize your autoplay features. The only thing that I use

    autoplay for is blank cds, whenever I put on it. its opens Nero
    for me, but

    all the other autoplay features are off on my comp. If you want

    restore it, just follow the same steps and hit restore defaults.

    you have it, how to turn on / off and customize your Autoplay in
