Dvd Autoplay


Simple . Autoplay on the dvd cd rom drive doesn't work. I have dell inspiron 1764ok this seems to be a problem. There are suggestions on the websites but none of them work for me.microsoft wake up. You haven't provided a decent answer. Reinstalling software is a time consuming and useless answer - it don't work. I have vmware - but uninstalling this is not an option! - So don't even suggest it. Tried reg entries . Noticed that my not play auto-play in local machine /software/microsoft etc entry is set to 255 - not good i think. But what do i set it to. Tried control panel and auto-play settings. They were blank any suggestions would be helpful. This is more annoying than anything else.

Autoplay For Dvd Drive Will Not Work

I have just upgraded from vista to windows 7 home edition on a dell studio 1737 laptop, the problem is discs wont autoplay and at times it wont even find the disc. The drive is a plds dl-8ats 12. 7mm slotload 8x dvdrw, it worked fine on vista but doesn't work now. Ive tried the obvious stuff and the registry fixes but still nothing. Device manager tells me the drive is there, the driver is the latest and its working fine. Dell are saying its not their fault its down to microsoft so wont help me.

Usb Device Goes To Autoplay Then Closed

I recently purchased a new pc with windows 7, all in all i like it, however i do have a problem .

I have lots of small usb flash drive devices - one for each of my clients - which i use for backing up config files and certain pieces of information for them.

However, when i try to access any of these devices through my windows 7 pc a strange thing happens, the device is recognized, the autoplay window appears, then before i can do anything it closes and the device disappears from "my computer".

I've tried the devices in both my laptop and another pc in the office running vista and both can access the data without a hitch, so its not the actual usb drives. I've got other usb external hard drives hooked into the windows 7 pc running perfectly well, plus a few other usb devices, so its not a usb issue.

Autoplay Not Working For Usb Flash Drive

Auto-play works smoothly on my windows 7 pro 64 bit installation with one exception. For some reason, it will not initiate with my usb drive (formatted fat32). The drive shows up in explorer just fine. I have already gone into the control panel for autoplay, and changed just about every setting imaginable, to no avail.

This is not a huge deal, except that it would be nice for this device to have the same behavior as other autoplay type devices. Oh, by the way, autoplay works just fine with this usb thumb drive on my notebook.

Making Synctoy Autoplay When Usb Drive Is Plugged In

I'm running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I asked this question over on experts-exchange, and they couldn't figure it out, so i'm hoping you all will have some ideas. I have a portable external usb harddrive. I use microsoft synctoy to "echo" files from one folder on my internal harddrive to a folder on the external harddrive. What i'm trying to do is have the synctoy program open when i plug in the external drive.

I've tried a few things. I went to the autoplay settings in the control panel and changed the mixed content setting to "ask me every time". That got the autoplay dialog to come up, but there was no way to select synctoy as the action to run. I also tried creating an autorun. Inf file in the root directory of the external harddrive. In it, i included the full path for synctoy on the computer. I tried this with and without quotation marks.

It seemed to have no effect on anything. Someone then suggested that i install microsoft tweakui, and have it add synctoy to the autoplay list. However, it appeared to me that tweakui isn't compatible with windows 7 (32 and 64 bit). I found compatibility on one of microsoft's windows 7 pages. Just to be clear, the goal is to get synctoy to open. I don't want the synchronization (echo) process to initiate.

Dvd Maker Cannot Create The Dvd

I'm getting this like everyone else on a windows 7 64 bit. The dvd burner is turned on, working, etc. I have 251 gb of free space. The problem is that this error message is so worthless, i.e. No real specifics like "out of space" , "codec error", "invalid input file", "hey, i just don't like you"  . There is nothing to work with. The input is a home movie avi which plays just fine in windows media center. The "just die for no apparent reason" point seems to be 38% in windows media center and 17% in windows dvd maker and the blank disk is kicked out.

If nothing else microsoft ought to build a fix that at least dumps some useful error messages about the failed process so there's a direction to take. At least under dvd maker the status was "encoding" and it dies during that. Windows media center tells you nothing, but the vague error. Oh, yes i did try again after a fresh re-boot and am running nothing else. Same problem.

Where Did My Cd, Dvd Go?

What has happened to my printer, cd & dvd as well as the erratic functioning of my mouse? I have run the very latest virus definitions in avast antivirus, in addition to adaware, emisoft's anti-malware and malawarebytes anti- malware programs. I even ran microsoft's own troubleshooting and fix-it solution. The ms program did detect the cd & dvd but came back with code 43 for port_#0002. Hub_#0002 and code 43 for port_#0001. Hub_#0006. What does this all mean?

Additionally, my mouse's erratic functioning varies greatly. Sometimes it works normally as it should and then in the next minute it can barely be made to move. I have a microsoft wireless mouse model # 1058 and a wireless keyboard model #5000. The optical drives are: tsst corp cd dvdw sh-s223f scsi & hl-dt-st bd-re ggw+h20l scsi. I am using win7 pro and have an amd tripe core 8650 with 4 gb of ram. I have two wd raptors running raid 0+3.

Dvd Maker

Win 7. I own this dvd. So i thought i would give this a try before looking elsewhere. "Regular" dvds have about a 4gb or so capacity and so i loaded up about 4 ripped vob files totaling 3. 5gb into the program and it told me it was over capacity. It seems that the program only recognizes 150 minutes. One vob file of only 1gb takes up about 120 minutes. It seems the program will not add files by size but rather by 150 minutes max.

Is this a known limitation of the program or did i do it wrong. Do i need to convert the vob files first in order to fit more on the dvd? Btw the vob files loaded up very nicely, played well and i was able to add transitions etc. But i need a program that will let me write back to disc the 4 + gb capacity of the disc. Tia.

Cd/dvd Issue

My cd/dvd drive can read and burn cds but isn't reading dvd or dvd-rom discs. It allows me to burn data to dvd-rs, just isn't reading them or any dvds. I want to try reinstalling windows 7 or possibly even downgrade to windows vista but am afraid i won't be able to if my cd/dvd drive continues to not want to read my windows 7 disc. I checked to upgrade my drivers and have done so. Hopefully the dvd lens isn't just messed up because i don't want to buy a new one when i'm just gonna give this laptop away to my sister. Any ideas?

Not Able To Play Dvd

I'm having problems with mine as well with the same error message. I am using windows 7 professional 64, i have updated to all the latest drivers and am still receiving the error message "windows media player cannot play this dvd because there is a problem with a digital copy protection between your dvd drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card. "

Older dvd's that i own are playing successfully, but those released within the last year are all receiving the same error. I have tested this on twilight, new moon, transformers and none of those mentioned are playing. The dvd's that i have listed have been purchased at wal-mart as well as best buy. The codec pack in which i am currently using is cole2k.

Fixing Cd/dvd Drive

My cd drive has been missing for several weeks, and do not know exactly when it disappeared. I went through the deleting upper and lower filters as most places say, then rebooting, and it didn't help. I have created a new reg file and merged, and that brought the drives back, but they did not show that a cd was in. It has since disappeared again, and i do not have lowerfilters.

I have tried system restore, but i always get an error code because it "cannot access the file". I have updated the firmware from the dell website, and ran several different virus scans. Itunes and my computer say the drive is missing, but device manager says it is functioning correctly and completely updated. My dvd drive is there, it is only the cd drive. I am running windows 7, and have a dell inspiron 1750.

Also, i checked my brothers computer, who has the same set-up, and his registry files are all identical to mine, and his drive works just fine.

Dvd Drive Disappeared

My dvd drive disappeared even though i stopped making virtual dvd drives for iso images.

Sorry for bad spelling. When i want to make a partition rpc server is unavailable. Dvd drive is not in device manager. The hardware and devices troubleshooter thinks i have no dvd drive. I have no iso imaging programs now but i need one.

Cd/dvd Drive Has Gone Missing

I have a new computer with windows 7 professional 64 bit and everything was fine but now my cd/dvd drive has gone missing. It's nowhere to be found in explorer and if i insert a cd or dvd nothing happens. I tried the troubleshooter but it tells me i don't have a cd/dvd drive. It's also not listed in device manager. I'm a complete non-techie type of person but was wondering if my drive has just gone kaput or maybe one of the leads internally has become disconnected. The computer is only about 3 months old. I have done all the updates that have been recommended. I would love it if someone could give me some ideas about fixing this.

Cannot Detect Dvd/cd Drive

My averatec 4200 laptop was just upgraded to windows 7. The dvd/cd drive worked fine when i installed windows 7, but for some reason it is no longer visible, anywhere.

Device manager - nothing
My computer - nothing
Hardware & sound troubleshooter - no device detected

I have tried everything i can think of. The dvd player hasn't been removed physically and reinstalled. Also, when i put in a dvd the player spins, but nothing is detected.

Dvd Drive Is Very Slow

I encountered another problem with my dvd drive " it does not work properly, as i can see root folder of dvd disk, but if i try to open any sub-folder or copy any file from root folder it freezes. For instance, i tried to start ms office 2007 installation from dvd but can't even execute setup.exe from root folder (was patiently waiting for 1+ hour).

After some research on the internet, i removed upper filter settings from windows registry (there is no lower filter). It helped a little bit, so i can see content of sub-folders (after 5-10 mins of waiting) but, still can't execute anything. Appreciate your help to fix it.

Computer details:

Msi p35 platinum, q6600, 4 gb ram, samsung sh222a, few sata hdds, nvidia geforce 9800 gtx
Windows 7 ultimate x64 (clean install from retail box)

Peripherals setup

Ide:
Master: internal dvd-rw, samsung sh222a
Slave: none
Sata:
Sata 3-7 various hdds (all seagate of various capacity from 750 gb to 1. 5 tb)
Raid: ide
P. S. The same setup works fine with windows xp

Ps. There are few files in sub-folders (winxp opens them in milliseconds). Also, i checked ide controllers, dma is enabeled for all drivers. Even log on win7 indicates tons of "error on cd drive during paging operation" events (no errors on winxp).

P. S. Cd cable is standard 40 pin, labeled as "ide cd cable" by manufacturer (asus). I've tried dvd in slave and cable select mode.

Win 7 Install Dvd

I recently bought a laptop that came with windows 7 pre-installed. I am looking to get a full install dvd set up so that i can re-partition my disk and reinstall windows onto one of two partitions, while installing linux on the other. I have a legitimate product key and i have installed the usb/dvd tool but it requires that i have an iso image to use. Is there somewhere on the microsoft site where i can obtain this for use with my legitimate key? Also, does a "system recovery disk" include a full install that can help me out in this situation?

Dvd Rom Not Showing Up

I loaded windows 7 onto my new computer. Everything was working fine. I loaded my programs that i use, updated those, and allowed windows update to do it's thing. After allowing windows to update and reboot it was then that both of my dvd rom's were missing from "my computer. " In device manager they indicate (windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware.

The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) when i uninstall the driver and reboot windows, the same thing keeps occurring. I've tried allowing windows the opportunity to search for a new driver however the answer is that i have the most current driver. What can i do to get my dvd rom's to appear again so that i can use them?
