So, a few days ago autoplay just stopped working for all portable storage devices including all my external hdds, flash drives etc. and I'm unable to access it via the right click context menu either.
I've checked the autoplay options under the Control Panel and according to that; everything seems to be working fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Cheers
