Autoplay MP3

Please help, I've Googled this to bits.

Why won't the following code autoplay an mp3?

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="" width="290" height="24" id="audioplayer6003" autoplay="true">
<param name="movie" value="" />
<param name="FlashVars" value="playerID=6003&amp;bg=0xF8F8F8&amp;leftbg=0xEEEEEE&amp;text=0x666666&amp;lefticon=0x666666&amp;rightbg=0xCCCCCC&amp;rightbghover=0x999999&amp;righticon=0x666666&amp;righticonhover=0xFFFFFF&amp;slider=0x666666&amp;track=0xFFFFFF&amp;loader=0x9FFFB8&amp;border=0x666666&amp;soundFile=;autoplay=true" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="menu" value="false" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<param name="autoplay" value="true" />

Here's the code in action:

Windows 7 and HP C4480 problem solved

Ok. Bloody Microsoft again.
New computer with Windows 7 64 bit. Year old HP Photosmart C4480 printer that worked fine with XP. Couldn't install software, got "Fatal Error during installation" then install prog went into a loop. It said the printer was installed and the scanner worked in Photoshop but when went to print, got "Printer not installed". Tried everything online, no joy.
Paid £16 to HP support for an online 'Friend'. Got Nathan. Top man. Here's what we did.
Installed latest Java, Flash, C++ Runtime, MS XML and .NET version 4. Still got "Fatal error during installation" and program looping but....... IT PRINTS.
Now to get on with the rest of my life.
By contrast, when I bought my Macbook and plugged in the printer, it recognised it and installed the driver immediately. WTF?????
