Made this a new topic, didn't really belong in a thread discussing driver websites.

What type of data is on the CD ?

If it is music, download Windows Media Player 10:

If your CD is a program CD and it is just not AutoRun(ing) when you insert it into your optical drive:

1) Make sure drivers are installed for the optical driver
2) Make sure the AutoRun option is enabled

To enable AutoRun do the following:

Start > Run > Type regedit

That will open your registry file. Navigate to the following folder:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom

Look for the file called AutoRun and set the value to 1 if it is not already.
