Configure Media And Device AutoPlay In Windows 7

7 Feb/10

Whenever I enter a blank CD or DVD in the drive I get an autoplay prompt. When I connect my laptop to the computer an autoplay prompt is shown. When I connect my digital camera an autoplay prompt is shown.

Autoplay prompts can be helpful. You can for instance use them to always transfer photos from the digital camera that you connect to the PC. But they can also be annoying. Ever had to burn ten or more DVDs only to be prompted with the autoplay dialog every time you would enter a new one?

Windows 7 makes it very easy and comfortable to deal with all those autoplay problems of media and devices.

The Control Panel contains an AutoPlay entry that can be used to define the default behavior of devices and media. The controls can be used to configure autoplay of audio CDs, dvd movies, pictures, blank CDs and DVDs, mixed content media or software and games.

The action for each device and media can be configured individually. Options range from “ask me every time” over playing or opening the device or media in a specific program to “take no action”.

Windows users who do not want to see an autoplay prompt for specific media or devices simply select take no action which will disable the autoplay window in Windows for those media and devices.

Devices will be listed in the configuration panel as well if they are connected to the computer. It is therefor recommended to connect all devices to the computer to configure their settings.

Autoplay can also be disabled globally by unchecking the Use AutoPlay for all media and devices checkbox.
