    you can turn on Auto Play by following these steps:

    1. Go to > Start open > My Computer.
    2. Right-click on your CD/DVD drive and select > Properties.
    3. Switch to the > AutoPlay tab.
    4. You will see a pull-down menu with file types. Select a file type, e.g. music files.
    5. Under > Actions select the AutoPlay action you prefer, e.g. play audio files.
    6. Click > Apply to save changes.
    7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 for any other file types you wish to assign an AutoPlay action to.
    8. Click > OK to close the window.

    Let us know whether this worked!
