    Can't get Windows 10 Autoplay to work


    I am a new user of Win10 as I am setting up a computer for our church. I like Win10 so far, but cannot make autoplay work. I searched online and tried several things, but to no avail. I even started Regedit, but there was no key (NoDriveTypeAutoRun) present in the directory that it was supposed to be in (probably the root of my problem). I also checked Services and found that Shell Hardware Detection was active and set to automatic.
    Any ideas how to fix this?
    Forgot to add that I went to Device Mgr to check if the DVD drive had the current driver. It did.
    Also, when I put a DVD in the drive, I don't get the popup that asks what I want to do. I did get the popup the first time I tried this and all it said was, "Take no action", but that doesn't even pop up anymore. In fact, here is a link to all the things I have tried (all to no avail):
    Fix: Autoplay Not Working in Windows 10

  2. autoplay doesn't work after loading windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    Please do let us know if you have installed all the pending updates on your device.

    Also, check with the sound drivers as well.

    I suggest you to check with the setting for AutoPlay and check if it helps.

    Even if you have turned on the AutoPlay option, there might be some option chosen Choose AutoPlay defaults. I suggest you to check with those options.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows key, type AutoPlay and click on AutoPlay settings.
    • To enable AutoPlay, move the Use AutoPlay for all media and devices button to On.
    • Next you can choose and set your AutoPlay defaults.
    For Removable drives, the following options are available from the drop-down menu:

    • Take no action
    • Open folder to view files
    • Ask me every time
    • Configure this drive for backup (File History)
    • Configure storage settings (Settings).

    For Memory Cards, the options available are:

    • Play video files using alternate
      software
    • Play using Windows Media Player
    • Take no action
    • Open folder to view files
    • Ask me every time.
    Set your options and exit.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.
