    Win 8.1 Pro (Retail) – DVD/CD Notification not Displayed


    The DVD/CD Notification panel “What to Do With This Disk” no longer appears when a disk is loaded into the burner. The panel options were Run setup, Open to view files or Do nothing. I do not recall if the panel appeared when a blank disk was loaded.

    Any suggestions as to how to re-activate the Notification?

    Also in the CD Drive Properties>Recording TAB>Disk burning, the dropdown box “Select the disk-burning drive…” is not populated. Is this an issue?

    TIA, Bill

    Check your Auto Play settings in control panel.

    My guess is you accidentally turned it off or set the default to "do nothing".
