Windows 8 Consumer Preview, hands-on

1. In the Win8 preview, putting a CD or DVD in the optical drive has zero effect for me -- that is, not only does the autoplay window not pop up, but the disc isn't even listed in Windows Explorer. (The same discs show up fine in the same PC if I boot into Windows 7.)

#1 is unchanged -- Win8 CP is still not detecting an optical disc in my drive, unless a CD or DVD happens to be sitting there already at bootup.

Glad it's not just me having optical drive problems, then! Thanks for the thread. :)

You're welcome -- I'm happy that the thread was useful!

News came out just last week that Windows 8 won't have built-in support for optical drives, which puts this problem into some perspective. Maybe the old joke applies: "It's not a flaw, it's a feature!!"
