How To: Turn Off Autoplay XP Home For USB Sticks
How to turn off autoplay XP home edition for USB flash drives.
Windows XP Home edition requires a different method to turn off the USB autoplay function than XP Professional [which we reported on earlier].
It’s not difficult to turn off the USB autoplay, just a couple easy steps.
Note:Â We are going into the Registry so be careful not to do anything other than what we suggest.
Got to>Â START > RUN > type “regedit“
Navegate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
**The “+” are the registry hives you must expand.
Now click the + Explorer directory just once so it is blue.Â On the right side you will see “NoDriveTrypeAutoRun“
Right click that and Select “Modify“
Here you most likely have b5 listed in the “Value data” field.Â Simply replace that value with 95.
Close out of the Registry and reboot your machine.Â Done!
