It sounds like AutoPlay may have gotten disabled on your drive somehow. Try this: Go into My Computer and right click on one of the drives. Then click on Properties and go to the AutoPlay tab. Then click on the restore defaults button. Click apply and then ok. Do the same thing to the other drive, then test a few discs to make sure it works.
Hi. About 9 months ago I installed a Pioner DVR 109 DVD burner in my HP Pavilion 540n. The HP manual said to set the jumpers on new drives to cable select, which I did, and connected it on same IDE cable as the CD burner. Since then, autoplay doesn't work and both the CD-RW and DVD-RW will only recognize the disc in the drives when I start the computer. If I change the disc to run a different program I get the "Please insert (whatever CD is needed) disc" message. Checking "My Computer" shows the old disc info even with another disc in the drive. I restart the computer and it works, until I want to change the CD again. I thought I could live with this...but it's really irritating. Would changing the jumpers to a master& slave setup correct this? Or what else could be wrong? Thanks for your help.
