Windows XP and toshiba laptops bug
Yet another lovely bug from your friends at Microsoft.
Taken directly from MSNBC
May 30 — Toshiba says their Satellite 1905-S277 laptops running Windows XP may have problems with two particular CD-ROM drives, the Toshiba DVD/CD-RW SD-R2102 and Toshiba CD-RW SR-C8002 , failing to auto-run. Toshiba says that as a workaround, eject the CD, wait about ten seconds and then try again. In their words “The autorun feature will start 4 out of 5 times.” Also, if Norton Auto Protect is enabled, it will prevent the autostarts. Clicking on the Norton icon in the Systray will bring up the settings where this can be configured off.
Hey, Four out of Five aint that bad...
