Automatic game options Limited

I recently installed an external hard drive WD (my book).  AutoPlay automatically displays "what to do with images" whenever my PC is out of sleepmode.  According to a reference of WD support, I downloaded and installed an update of microsoft for automatic playback (KB971029 - x 86).  Now I get "open folders to view files" each time that it is the only option available when I goto computer - AutoPlay the camera screen while the images option was no longer displayed.  How can I disable autoplay for only this device?

Thank you


Hi Amos3andy,

Follow the instructions below that may help you resolve the issue.

1. with the WD external hard drive plugged in, go to the computer and right click on the drive.
2. click on properties, then select the AutoPlay tab.
3. click on 'select Action to perform' and select 'Take no Action' in the menu.
Check whether the problem is resolved.

If this does not work, try to disable it in the registry by following the instructions below.

Change the settings of the REGISTRY can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the REGISTRY settings configuration can be solved. Changes to these settings are at your own risk.
Before you edit the registry, make sure to save and make sure you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up, restore, and modify the registry, click on the link below.

To disable specific Autorun features in a selective way, you must change the NoDriveTypeAutoRun entry in one of the following subkeys in registry keys:

A value of 0 x 4 disables AutoRun on removable disks.
The value of the NoDriveTypeAutoRun registry entry determines which drive or drives for the Autorun feature will be disabled. For example, if you want to disable Autorun for drives only network, you must set the value of NoDriveTypeAutoRun registry entry to 0x10.

If you want to disable Autorun for multiple drives, you must add the hexadecimal value corresponding to the value 0 x 10. For example, if you want to disable Autorun for removable drives and network drives, you must add 0x4 and 0x10, which is adding mathematical 2 hexadecimal values, to determine the value to use. 0x4 + 0x10 = 0 x 14. Therefore, in this example, you would set the value of the NoDriveTypeAutoRun entry to 0x14.

The default value for NoDriveTypeAutoRun registry entry varies according to the different Windows operating systems. These default values are listed in the following table.

Operating system

Default value

Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista

0 x 91

  • Satellite A500-1GL - power of Windows 7 and the games options

    Hi all

    Some know maybe my previous posts about my problem with the fan on my Satellite A500-1GL worry when I'm online game. It is disturbing to hit the 90%. And his pass even with the update of the BIOS and Toshiba now advise to do a factory restore then fails to send in for repair.
    Looking at the power options,

    I was wondering if someone could recommend this power options I should consider and it would have made no difference for the wise game fan (secondlife seems to be the main problem with the fan turn the crank to the top)

    Any help would be appreciated, trying to think of something that might help which may be a simple solution to this problem of fan
    Torti :)


    To be honest, a lot of activity of fan during the games would be normal I think because games need a lot of CPU and GPU power, they always run at a very high level. This means a lot of heat will occur and it must be cooled to avoid damage.

    Of more if I have the games, it s not important how the fan noise creates because I hear music or dialogue game Isn t it so? ;)

    In any case, from time to time it s advisable to clean the cooling system of your laptop using a jet of compressed air:

    And for games, you can use high power option or balanced Windows Performance.

    Hi, I can't play chess. in the upper left corner, there was a box to allow you to change the level of play. to cancel, change the Board of Directors. He went there nothing. What can I do


    -What is the operating system installed on your computer?

    -What do you mean by "he went there nothing"? You receive all of the options for change or it appears grayed out?

    Method 1: As the first method of resolution, I suggest to uninstall and reinstall the game to Windows features turn on or off and check if the problem persists.

    1. go to Start and in the search type "Turn Windows features on or off".

    To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:

  • Can not disable "automatically connect" option on WIFI connections

    What I think is really strange or normal.

    I have windows 8 on my laptop and a wireless adapter Inter Centrino N-2230.

    Recently, all the WIFI connections that appear as available have the option "auto-connect" checked. I uncheck the box, but they will be automatically checked again.  I don't know that previously, all wifi connections before the box unchecked by default.

    However, this is NOT the case with the WiFi one, I mainly use, IE my home cable connection. I can uncheck the option for this one and it remains disabled. Weird.

    I'm a bit worried that if I use my laptop near an unsecured connection, it will automatically connect to it without my knowing which resulted in security problems.

    No idea if it's a problem and how to solve?

    Thank you

    I guess all the machines of boredom that are automatically connect using Intel PROSet Wireless Tools.  Simple fix.

    Go to the control panel.

    Type Wireless in the search panel.

    If Intel PROSet Wireless Tools is an option up until it clicks (so you can have another problem)

    Under the Intel Wifi HotSpot Wizard option, click settings

    Uncheck the box to automatically connect to free WiFi Hotspots.

    Click on close

    Your DONE!

    Problem solved unless you do not use Intel PROSet Wireless tools.

  • iTunes game 'Option of renewal' in iTunes 12.5.1?

    I installed iTunes 12.5.1. I had iTunes game, but isn't Apple music.

    I went to iTunes - > account - > view my account

    There is a category "iTunes in the Cloud", but no mention of iTunes game. He used to have an auto-renew date. Now it lists just "Manage devices" and 'Hidden purchases' in the category ' iTunes in the Cloud. " There is nothing about iTunes game. I tried this on a desktop computer running "Yosemite" and a laptop running 'Sierra' with the same result.

    I don't know if this change took place with iTunes 12.5.1. This is the first time I've watched in a long time. Now it appears somewhere else? I worry a little that it's the last days of iTunes game as Apple pushes everyone to the Apple's music!

    Or maybe I'm just something missing. Wouldn't be the first time!

  • Satellite P500 - AutoPlay message

    I have a Sony memory card in my Satellite P500 dedicated to ReadyBoost. It seems to work very well, but there is a minor irritation.

    Quite often (= several times a day) an autorun message appears on the screen asking if I want to see the files on the card via Windows Explorer. I have not, of course, as there is only a single file ReadyBoost on the map. Message offers a range of automatic game options but these are content-music, pictures etc - but no car, so a memory card can not be identified.

    As I say, it's only a minor irritation but is anyone know how I can convince my machine this auto run does not apply to my memory card?

    Thank you very much

    HomeGuard salvation,

    Have you tried another flash card? You can also use for example and for ReadyBoost SD cards too. The current map of memory may be defective
    Check this box!

    Last but not least, you can try updating the driver for the card reader. You can download the Toshiba site so it s worth a try!

    By the way: you may notice a performance using ReadyBoost gain? I tried but I couldn't t notice a big difference.
