    I'm assuming what you mean is that the CDRom drive is no longer set for 'Auto Play'. What you need to do is go into System Resources/Device Manager (I'm not running XP so the terminology may be a little different). Find your CDRom drive and its Properties. 'Auto Insert Notification' must be checked in order for your disks to 'Auto Play'.

    Hope this gets you the result you need.

    All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

    I guess that you have to re-install.

    Only question I can ask is if you are running some sort of secondary defence system that might misunderstand your CD as a threat and open it in notepad...Script Defender would be such software?
