  1. How I prevent AutoRun.exe being run when plugging in a USB dongle with with Virtual CD-ROM?


    I have already tried various things disable it, namely via the Registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies, setting NoDriveTypeAutorun to FF of type 32-bit DWORD) and via the Local Group Policy Editor (Computer > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > AutoPlay Policies and then setting Turn off AutoPlay to enabled). I also disabled AutoPlay in the Settings, but none of this has an effect.


    The USB dongle in question is a E3372h modem. In previous firmware versions it was possible to disable the CD mode, but not in the latest one, so I need to find a way of disabling it in Windows.

    :)

  2. CD-ROM not reading any disks

    We appreciate the information that you've provided. Our next step is to consider the following methods below:

    • Manually update your DVD/CD-ROM driver. There are cases wherein automatic update doesn't install the compatible driver to your device. To do this, check your device support site and ensure that you've downloaded and installed the appropriate
      driver for your device.
    • Run the hardware troubleshooter to scan and automatically fix any errors preventing your
      DVD/CD-ROM to work properly. Here are the steps on how to run the troubleshooter:
      • Type Troubleshoot in the search box and press Enter.
      • Select Hardware and Devices.
      • Click Run the troubleshooter.
      • Allow the scan to complete, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the fix.
    • Try another CD/DVD for further isolation. If your device was able recognize other
      CD/DVD then the issue is not hardware related.

    Feel free to post back if you encounter any challenges along the process.

  3. cannot play auto-run CD-Rom consists of flash (flash player 9 )in Windows 10

    Hi,

    In order to autorun a program from a USB or CD, it must contain the autorun script file (autorun.inf). Let's try creating an autorun script file using a notepad and save it on the CD. Follow the steps below:

    • Open Notepad.
    • Type the following commands below:
      • [autorun]

        ;Open=YOURAPP.exe

        ShellExecute=YOURAPP.exe

        UseAutoPlay=1
    • Save the file to your CD with the file name autorun.inf, then select
      All Files (*.*) in the save as type field.

    Note: Replace YOURAPP text with the file name of the application you're trying to start.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.

    Windows 10 Autorun?

    Hello,

    As you are asking whether the security of disabling Autorun/Autoplay option from system settings is the same as disabling from the registry and will take affect in the same way. There is no need to worry about virus threats which usually attack from autorun/autoplay.
    If you want to disable autorun/autoplay from registry, follow the steps provided below:

    • Type regedit in the search box and press Enter.
    • Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    • In the right pane of the window create a new DWORD value "NoDriveTypeAutorun".
    • Set the value based on the following requirements:
      • FF – To disable AutoRun on all drives
      • 20 – To disable AutoRun on CD-ROM drives
      • 4 – To disable AutoRun on removable drives
      • 8 – To disable AutoRun on fixed drives
      • 10 – To disable AutoRun on network drives
      • 40 – To disable AutoRun on RAM disks
      • 1 – To disable AutoRun on unknown drives
    • If you want to disable AutoRun on a certain combination of drives, you’ll have to combine their values. For example, if you want to disable AutoRun on CD-ROM and removable drives, set the value of DWORD to 28.
    • If you want to return AutoRun functionality, just delete the NoDriveTypeAutorun DWORD value.

    Note: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore,
    make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following
