    Cannot use ‘AutoPlay’ option while inserting disc into Windows Vista

    Whenever I insert a disc into my PC running on Windows Vista, it will read the disc without any trouble. But, it is not possible to activate the ‘Auto Play’ option. Is there any solution available for this problem?

    As a first step, bring up the start search box by pressing the ‘Start’ button located at the bottom left part of the desktop. Enter services.msc into that box and spot out ‘Services’ option among the search results. Click on that option and locate ‘Shell Hardware Detection’ service from the ‘Services’ window. Double click on that service afterwards and use the drop down list to set ‘Automatic’ to ‘Startup Type’ option. If this won’t work, try to open autoplay from ‘Control Panel’. Choose the ‘Control Panel’ from the start menu above the start search box and click ‘Hardware and Sound’ option from the ‘Control Panel’ window. You can then find ‘AutoPlay’ option on window. Click on that option and select the inserted disc from available options before pressing the ‘Save’ button.

    Activating autoplay or autorun is easy, take the following measures to activate it.

    Click START--CONTROL PANEL--HARDWARE AND SOUND--AUTO PLAY,
    Then select the checkbox USE AUTOPLAY FOR ALL MEDIA AND DEVICES.
    OK, to exit.

    From next session the disk should be played when inserted automatically.
