    Windows 7 and AutoPlay

    I am trying to set AutoPlay, and cannot seem to get it right.

    I wet to

    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ely-block.html

    and kinda/sorta got it right, but then...not.

    I have external USB hard drives. If I do nothing, ever time I start up my machine the "Options" box pops up for each partition / drive.

    If I disable autorun per the above link, the drives still work, but do not open up the 'Choices" box. Good.

    But now if I insert a CD, it won't start automatically.

    Is there a way to have external hard drives' and USB drives' autorun disabled but still have the CD players' autostart work?

    In the Autoplay of the Control PAnel, I have the CD set to play/start with realplayer...but it doesn't.

    ?
