I was having a problem with the Windows 7 autoplay feature not working from DVD ROM drive. Here's how I solve the problem:

Shell Hardware Detection service was not running.

Here's how to fix it:
Start> In search box type services.msc> Scroll down to Shell Hardware Detection, and make sure that it is Running, and the Startup Type is set to Automatic. If not, start the service and change the Startup Type.

If you hold the shift button down while you insert a CD-ROM/DVD that will disable the auto play, it's been that way since Windows 95.
