To enable autoplay for the DVD/CD drive, you go to my computer or Windows Explorer, right click on the drive then left click on properties. That is where you find the autoplay tab and can select what you want to do with different types of files.
I don't know if that will work with your camera or not. Try connecting the camera, opening either my computer or Windows exlorer and see if you can access autoplay in the same manner you do for the DVD/CD drive. If you can, then select photos and pick the program you want to use or select prompt me each time to choose an action.
Both my partner and I run our own xp pro-sp1 editions of Windows on our own computers. We both have the same problem; we've lost out Auto Play for downloading digital pictures. What an annoyance to loose it once you've had it. I downloaded the fix from Microsoft, that didn't work. I tried System Restore, that didn't work either, you name it, I've tried it. We know we can download the pictures by going through Computer and right clicking, but it's just not the same thing as Auto PLay.
What's the secret, how do we get Auto Play to appear automatically when we start downloading pictures? Please tell me there is a solution and that we don't have to format to get the feature to work properly again. I don't mind formatting to solve the problem, but what if we do that and the same problem crops up again! The solution can't always be to format.
One of the great features about xp is the AutoPlay feature. Please help.
