Autoplay for Portable Devices
Posted: 07-18-2008, 10:17 AM
install. A couple of days ago i decided to reformat and reinstall vista.
Straight away when that finished i started applying SP1 and all other
necessary updates. Autoplay still working fine. I connected my Zen MP3 and
its autoplay dialougue opened as normal. Then a few days later, i tried
connecting my camera to import. I was notified that drivers had successfully
been installed, but no auto play popped up. I checked in Computer and saw
that it was indeed connected and listed under portable devices. I was still
able to import off it using Live Photo Gallery. But i wanted the autoplay to
show up. Then i tried connecting my MP3. Guess what? No autoplay, but it was
listed under portable devices in Computer. I connected my Handcam through
firewire, and its atuoplay showed up normally, and so does all other types of
autoplay devices (DVD, External Drive, USB flash drive, etc) except for my
camera and MP3, both listed as Portable Devices.
I have been searching the web for answers, and have tried various fixes
which never addressed the problem. I have tried the one that involves going
into the registry to look for some value "NoDriveTypeAutoRun", but i cant
find this value anywhere.
Does anyone know how to fix this. As i said before, it was working properly
on my previous installation, with an almost identical system.
