  5. Can't get autorun to work on Removable Media

    OK well I installed Tweak UI but it did sweet F,A still no autorun now as for why I want autorun this is an error on the inlaws computer a.k.a Not very Tech Minded . All they want is when they insert their SD Media card into the reader they want the Camera/Scanner Wizard to work as that makes their lives a heap easier to transfer Photo's etc. Please I'm running out of ideas

  7. Can't get autorun to work on Removable Media

    Sorry I'll be more specific There is no option to enable or disable automatically running CD-ROMs in the user interface. To enable or disable automatically running CD-ROMs, you must edit the registry: 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER. 2. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom 3. To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1. 4. Restart your computer. NOTE: This method disables automatically running CD-ROMs. If you want to disable automatically running CD-ROMs depending on the CD-ROM that you insert in the CD-ROM drive, you can press and hold down one of the SHIFT key while you insert the CD-ROM. Back to the top Back to the top Additional Information There are two other registry keys that can affect this functionality: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer NoDriveTypeAutoRun = 0x00000095 -and- HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer NoDriveTypeAutoRun = 0x00000095 The correct value for each is 0x00000095. That is what I did but to no luck
