Autoplay DVD with WMP
I do not have Windows Media Player as a choice in the dropdown.
Start > Default Prograns > Chage Autoplay Settings > DVD Movie
gives me four choices; a Blue box with no description, Open Folder to view
files using Windows Explorer, Take No Action and Ask Me Every Time
How do I get WMP to be the default for DVD movies?
Thanks

Will WMP play a DVD on your system?

If_yes_maybe the following articles will help.

Set VOB to open in WMP.

Re: Autoplay DVD with WMP
Thanks for the reply John,
I did not have WMP checked to "Enable Access to WMP"
Here:
Control Panel > Default Programs > Set Program Access and Computer Defaults
> Custom > Enable Access to WMP

Once I did this I was prompted for a media player choice upon loading a DVD
Thanks
