B: If you constantly get "Prepare blank disc" and Windows Vista tries to format all your CD's, DVD's, or CD-ROM's ( Burned or Stamped Commercial Disk ) then this might solve your problem if you have installed VMware. (care of pcgeek11, Dell forum)

By default, VMware disables autorun upon installation due to possible conflicts with some drives. Go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSET\Services\CDRom

Look for the "Autorun" key. If its value is set to "0", set it to "1" and reboot.
