Autoplay - windows 7

simple . autoplay on the dvd cd rom drive doesnt work.  i have dell inspirion 1764


ok this seems to be a problem.  There are suggestions on the websites but none of them work for me.  Microsoft wake up.  You havent provided a decent answer.  Reinstalling software is a time consuming and useless answer - it dont work. i have vmware - but uninstalling this is not an option! - so dont even suggest it.




Tried reg entries .  noticed that my notplayatuoplay in local machine /software/micforsoft etc entry is set to 255 - not good i think.  but what do i set it to.


tried control panel and autoplay settings.  they were blank


any suggestions would be helpful.  this is more annoying than anything else
