I have a bunch of HD .iso files and when I mount, InterVideo always comes up with my Sony Vaio as the player.

How do I change this?

Please have a look here: Change AutoPlay settings (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Change-AutoPlay-settings)

Thanks for the link


I have tried that and the only options for Auto Play for me are "WinDVD" which is Intervideo and the one I do not want and "Windows Media Player" which when I use to be default, DOES NOT come up when I mount my .iso file, the WinDVD still comes up.


Thanks again though. I just thought I would post thinking another Daemon user might have the same issue.

Also, what is playing when mounted with Daemon? Is it a Blu-Ray, is is looked at as just a DVD or video file by Windows? I need to know this to choose the proper Auto Play function.

Check in the Preferences/Options of WinDVD whether you can deselect your very file/media type.

If that doesn't work have a look at this tiny app: Removing unwanted AutoPlay Handlers in Windows XP and Windows Vista (http://windowsxp.mvps.org/autoplayhandlers.htm)

DAEMON Tools doesn't change anything, so only you can answer that question.

So I guess an iso file is just a video file to Daemon?

No, it's either a CD, DVD or Blu-ray disc to DAEMON Tools.

Did CleanHandlers properly remove your unwanted AutoPlay handler ?

Installed it and ran it but not sure how to use it, still working on that. I am trying to find Pot Player or Windows Media player for Auto Play but just canot add it.

You can only remove unwanted/orphaned entries with Clean Handlers - not add new ones.

If you remove the WinDVD ones WMP maybe gets control again.
What are your ISOs ? Blu-ray disc images ?

Regarding Pot Player: Preferences/Association/Autoplay
