    In my Portegé R700 there is no way to make autorun working (for CD/DVD and USB keys as well). CD/DVD and USB keys work perfectely, but not the autorun.

    I've tried to use both the AutoFix of Microsoft and the PowerToys, but the problem it's still there. I've tried also to modify the Registry, but it seems that the changes are not kept. I suspect there is something related to some utilities or so.
    Can anybody help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey,

    > I suspect there is something related to some utilities or so.
    What kind of utilites you have installed? Theoretically they could block the autorun…

    Normally if autorun doesn’t work on XP you can enable it in Windows registry:
    Start > run > regedit

    The registry editor will open and navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER / Software / Microsoft / Windows / CurrentVersion / Policies / Explorer
    Double click on the value “NoDriveTypeAutoRun” and set the value “91”.

    Now you have to navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / CurrentControlSet / Services / Cdrom

    Double click on the value “AutoRun” and set the value “1”.

    Now restart your computer and test it again, usually autorun should work again.
    Furthermore make sure that newest Service Pack is installed for XP (SP3).

    Thanks for your quick answer.
    Unfortunately both settings were already at the right values you have indicated (I remind you that I have the same problem with USB keys).
    I didn't install any specific utility if not the ones coming with the Portegé R700 (which is brand new and that I was starting to use for the first time).
    Any other ideas?
    Thanks.

    The easiest way to enable Autorun for CD/DVD drive is this:

    - Right Click on CD/DVD drive in My Computer and choose Properties
    - Select the AutoPlay tab.
    - Select each item from the pulldown list and for the Action to perform
    - Select OK.

    Thanks a lot.
    I did already trie all you have suggested, but with no success.
    In the meantime I've found the solution which I post for common benefit of the users of the forum who could be interested: I've simply modified the settings of my antivirus (Kaspersky 6.0) which was blocking the autorun and now everything works. Great!
    Thanks to all anyway for the support.
