Hi, I am using Windows Vista and the Auto Run won't work. Also when I click on Start...Computer...I don't see the Sony CD Rom icon. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help. Thanks.
Sony CD Rom is a cd-rom drive (maybe). It should have nothing to do with the auto-run. You have just a problem with the CDrom drive. Possible hardware failure, driver failure or badly changed settings.
Google a bit and you will find how to start the Autorun for drives.

AutoRun became restricted from Vista onwards for certain devices (such as flash-based media), but not for CD's. If no drive icon in My Computer, sounds like a HW issue.
Easiest way to find out if the CD drive is functioning and/or (physically) connected... reboot into the BIOS settings. If CD drive is not listed, then you likely have a hardware issue. If it is listed, reboot into Windows and open up the Device Manager to see if device has been disabled.
