Autorun Won't Start Discs; Does Start External Drives
Something is wrong with the Autoplay options in Win7 Home 64-bit, it seems.
In Autoplay, if under "software and games" I select "install or run program from your media", (and "Use Autoplay for all media and devices" is NOT checked), inserting a software disc in the dvd drive with an .inf file will NOT start the disc/autorun. The disc
will only autorun if all media and devices checkbox is checked.
The additional problem is this: if that box is checked, whenever I turn on my computer, the "what do you want to do" choice box pops up for my external hard drive! What an annoyance. I don't want to be asked what I want to do with the external hard drive
each time I boot up.
Lastly, at the bottom of the Autoplay setting page is a section entitled "Devices that connect to your computer will be listed here." There is NOTHING listed there....
no my thumb drive, not my external hard drive.
So I would appreciate answers to these three issues:
(1) Autorun won't work when just software/games is set to install or run
(2) If Autoplay is set for all media and devices I keep being asked what I want to do with my external hard drive everytime I boot up (there is "do nothing" option that can be saved)
(3) Why no attached devices are listed in the section of the autoplay page where they should be listed.
