What sort of cd, blank, data, audio/video? if autoplay is disabled, you will need to manually start whichever process you want.

Windows Help System

"AutoPlay is a Windows feature that lets you choose which program to use to start different kinds of media, such as music CDs, or CDs and DVDs containing photos. For example, if you have more than one media player installed on your computer, AutoPlay will ask which media player you want to use when you try to play a music CD for the first time. You can change AutoPlay settings for each media type.


Autorun is a technology used to automatically start programs or enhanced content (such as video content on a music CD) when you insert a CD or another media type into your computer. This is different from AutoPlay, but the result is often the same: when inserted, the CD starts automatically by using a particular program. Autorun is incorporated into the media types that use it, and you can't modify it.

When you try to play a CD or another media type that uses autorun, AutoPlay asks you to choose an action to perform (for example, to play the autorun content or to skip it)."

End qute.
