Whoa. Sounds like Microsoft is getting super-serious about security, to the point of cutting out beloved features like Autorun:

Today, we’re announcing modifications in Windows that adapts to recent changes in the threat environment. Specifically, we’re announcing changes to the behavior in AutoPlay so that it will no longer enable an AutoRun task for devices that are not removable optical media (CD/DVD.). However, the AutoRun task will still be enabled for media like CD-ROM.

I guess Microsoft has decided which side of the “Innovate or Die” spectrum they want to be on.
