Hello:

When I insert a video dvd, the autorun window that pops up lists a few dvd-related programs that I would never use to view the movie; it lists the Windows Media Player (which I would use reluctantly); it lists a few nonsense / incomplete entries; but it does not list NVDVD which is the program I almost always desire to use. As a result, I have to close the autorun popup window and go through the Start menu to get to NVDVD.

Is there a way to control the options that show up when I insert a dvd movie?

The "actions" from which I can choose do not include NVDVD or, for that matter, a couple of other programs I have on the computer that could play the dvd movie. The list of possible choices does include Windows Media Player, of course.

Is it possible to add a program to the list of choices? There doesn't seem to be an obvious way to do it.

If you have a DVD File on the drive, right click it, click properties, click change, set it to open with the player you want, tick always use this for this file type, click apply

Go back to auto run and see if the player is included when set for DVD Movie files, you may need to reboot
