Auto Play Fix for XP Home

Actually this is a major problem with Win XP Home. The default registry keys are incorrect. If this is a Win XP Operating System that you're having problems with then the fix is as follows:

Auto Play Fix for Win XP Home
The problem with auto play or autorun not playing cd's has nothing to do with winamp but is a glitch with Win XP. I just found a fix and tested it on my system at home that was having the same issue. To fix it the following registry values need to be changed. Caution: If you've never modified the registry before always back it up first so that you can restore it if you have any problems.

Anway, click start>run>regedit

then modify the following values:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\ NoDriveTypeAutoRun = 0x00000095 (current drive type = 91 so if this value reads 0x00000091 then change it to 95

and also change this reg key value for NoDriveTypeAutoRun
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\ Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutoRun =0X00000095(The default is probably 91) so if this value reads 0x00000091 then change it to 95

close your registry

insert a cd or dvd into your drive and close the tray and whoila your autorun should now work.

Hope this helps!
