Usually when I insert a DVD movie into one of the optical drives (I have 2, a ROM and a burner ) up comes a small window asking me which program I want to use to open it, and this is exactly what I want, but it is not happening when a DVD movie is inserted, instead the drive window opens displaying the 2 folders, Audio_TS and Video_TS.
My OS hard drive is mounted in a cradle and easily removable and here is the thing, if I replace the OS HD with another HD also using Win XP SP3 the problem does not exist and all works as it should.
In short it is only acting up on one of my operating systems and not on the other, why?
What I want is for the "option" window to open allowing me to select the program I want to use to run the DVD (Power DVD) as it does with my XP HD.
I have gone into the drive "Options" panel for both optical drives and did what I could there. I even checked my AV program to ensure that the "block autostart" was not turned off (which can be done with my AV program).
I am at a loss as to why it is doing this and only with this XP HD.
Thinking hurts my head that's why I live in West Australia
