Autoplay problems


T

Terry Pinnell

Normally when I insert a DVD into my DVD drive it plays with PowerDVD
automatically, courtesy Autoplay.

Today it showed just the contents in an Explorer window. And looking
at the Autoplay tab in the Properties for that drive I see the list of
actions no longer even *includes* PowerDVD.

Is there a registry entry I can change to fix this please? And could
someone remind me of the common causes why Autoplay stops working
please?

BTW, I note that the Autoplay list of file types doesn't include 'DVD'
explicitly. Do I assume 'Video files' is the only relevant one in this
context?

Pleased to report that after various housekeeping exercises (CCleaner,
Glary Utilities, sfc scannow) and a reboot, I got Autoplay back. And
the list now includes DVD again.
