DVD Drive Application not found


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I've recently installed Windows 7 on my laptop and it seems to not be able to find my DVD drive. The DVDs work fine if i right click on it and click play. But just double clicking on it brings up a message saying.

 

E:\ Application not found.

 

I have changed the autoplay settings but it hasnt fixed the problem...

 

Is it something in the registy!?

 

Please help.

 

Cheers,

 

Julian.

When you double click the drive, Windows searches for an executable file with which it would normally attempt to install whatever media is contained on the disc. I'm pretty sure Windows 7 is set to do this by default, so what you're experiencing seems normal.

 

Just run the DVD by right clicking, or through whatever media app you use to play DVDs.
