NoDriveTypeAutoRun on Windows 7

Microsoft Windows 7 home premium
April 10, 2011 at 14:43:14
Specs: Windows 7, Core 2 Duo
I have Home Premium, so I cant use the group policy for this. I need to activate autoplay using regedit. Please help me. Currently, the data is set to 0x00000091 (145). When I double click NoDriveTypeAutoRun, it says that the value data is 91, and it's hexadecimal. HOW do I put 0x91, the correct value for Auto Play to work????? When I press x, it sounds the "ding" of alert, as I can't put that as a value.

Thanks.

Is it in the control panel under autoplay?

Yes. I have all my preferences like I want it to be (DVD, open VLC for example). I'm trying to get AutoPlay on Windows 7 Home Premium, which does not have Group Policy.

I looked in the registry in Vista Home Premium, which has most things the same as in Windows 7 Home Premium.
I searched for NoDriveTypeAutoRun in Keys, Values, and Data and I DO NOT have NoDriveTypeAutoRun in the registry at all.
I found info about where that NoDriveTypeAutoRun entry is supposed to be (see next), went there, and it definately is NOT in ether place.

My AutoRun works fine by the way.
........

There is some t-shooting info here:
http://www.fanhow.com/answers/quest...

"Currently, the data is set to 0x00000091 (145)."

According to that t-shooting info that's the correct value, for Vista and Windows 7.

"When I double click NoDriveTypeAutoRun, it says that the value data is 91, and it's hexadecimal."

That's correct too. That's = 0x00000091 binary.
The 0's are omitted when you look there.

Something else is wrong.
........

"When I press x, it sounds the "ding" of alert, as I can't put that as a value."

What x ? I don't see no x in Vista.

When you type regedit in the Start Search box, you probably need to RIGHT click on regedit.exe in the search results box and choose Run as Administrator, in order to be able to actually edit things in the registry.
However, there is NOTHING WRONG with that entry !

Thanks for the post. In X, I meant as in 0X00000091. Never mind, I just figured out that AutoPlay was disabled by Micros--- in order to "avoid malware to be auto ran" How gay is that????? Keep your Vista. It's of no use upgrading to 7.

"....I just figured out that AutoPlay was disabled by Micros--- in order to "avoid malware to be auto ran""

Where did you get that info?

I very much doubt that's the case - if it were, we would be getting posts about the problem every day.

warning Warning
Autoplay feature is, by default, disabled in Windows 7 due to security reasons. Many malwares like Conficker Worm can autorun on your computer if an infected USB drive or CD is inserted.However, its useful to enable autoplay as it gives quick access to default choices when any removable drive is inserted. Anyways, use it at your risk.

I am having the same issue, it just started a couple of weeks ago, my flash drive or external usb drive no longer auto plays. Autoplay settings are enabled. I went to the Microsoft Store, they were no help. Any other ideas?
Thanks,

See the info in response 6.

I found out a while after I had posted in this Topic that what he said is true.

I suspect that Windows 7 can initially Autorun but that's disabled by one of the Windows updates.
