    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Try running the Microsoft Autofix.exe. This should help to reset your cd-roms to auto play.

    I have attached the file for you. Just unzip it and double click on exe.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Go into your device manager and right click on your optical drives and choose uninstall. Reboot your computer and Windows will redetect the drives. See if that helps.

    Regards Howard :)

    P.s I have merged your other thread with this one. Please don`t start anymore threads for this particular problem. Thanks.
