When I insert a blank CD, it gives me every option except the one I want (burn disc with Nero). How do I control what appears on this auto-play dialog? I have Windows XP 64-bit edition.

How to Change CD/DVD content AutoPlay actions in Windows XP

Here you can change the default actions.

If you want to change the CD/DVD burning options, read Doug Knox' guide:

Add Your CD Burning Program to AutoPlay Actions

... which happens to deal with Nero Burning ROM (involves editing the registry).

I don't have Windows 7, Molly. I don't even have Vista. Thanks for help, though! Hey I think you were helping me on another question I am trying to figure out:… – Josh Stodola Dec 29 '09 at 0:03
yep, just spotted that, edite my answer :) – Molly7244 Dec 29 '09 at 0:04
Thanks for edit! – Josh Stodola Dec 29 '09 at 0:04
Yes, I just tried this and it works! Thank you. Although it kind of sucks having to edit the registry like that. Oh well, now I can write up a quick app to automate the process :D – Josh Stodola Dec 29 '09 at 0:20
well, Vista/7 are easier, as they do offer defaults for blank cd/dvd, as you may have seen in the original answer ... is it a reason to upgrade? not in my books, it isn't :) – Molly7244 Dec 29 '09 at 0:22
