WMP11-B2: Autoplay is off but all my CDs autoplay anyway

    Is this expected?

    Scenario: WMP is open. CD drive empty. Put CD in drive and close. CD plays.

    Autoplay is set to Take No Action in Properties on the drive. Autoplay is
    also off for the drive according to TweakUI.

    System is XP SP2 MCE, everything up to date. Behavior on WMP10 was that the
    CD did not autoplay. This happens since WMP11.

    Thanks,
    Stewart.

    I'm not sure what that means Zach. Anyway, how do I fix this please? I.e.
    when Autoplay is off, it should be off.

    should cover that. AutoPlay and AutoInsert Notification are slightly
    different wrinkles of the same system. WMP gets AutoInsert Notification and
    is trying to be proactively helpful. Sounds like you've turned off AutoPlay
    but not AIN.

    Thanks Zach, so AIN is on per regedit.

    Sounds like a bug if WMP pays attention to that but not AutoPlay, especially
    when AIN doesn't have a GUI setting to control it. WMP isn't even taking
    notice of holding down the left shift key. Is this issue with AIN a
    recognized bug?

    I don't keep track of what PSS classifies as recognized bugs - that would be
    a good question to ask them. Note that at this point in the product cycle,
    reports from developers of bugs are less important than reports from
    customers. =)
