    Autoplay Doesn't Work Correctly (Vista)

    Greetings

    The first few times i plugged (usb) my canon rebel xti into my computer the
    autoplay work just fine to import my pictures using windows. Now nothing
    happens when i plug the camera in. In order to download now, i go to
    start/computer where my camera is identified and right click than select
    import pictures.

    Currenty, when I open the autoplay window, i have "import pictures using
    windows" selected for pictures and, what is weird, i have two identicle
    entries for my camera under "Devices". For both of these entries i have
    selected "import pictures using windows".

    Any help is appreciated...thanks in advance...j

    It could be a "group policy issue".
    Have you tried fooling with different settings in "autoplay"? Such as "ask me every time".
    Also check out the following registry key.
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdrom The value for "Autorun" needs to be dword: 1... .
    Hope this helps.

    dbknox posted this link in another thread about this sort of AutoPlay / AutoRun problem. I also had this problem, and this website solved my problem.

    AutoPlay/AutoRun Not Working or Missing Not Open in Windows Vista My Digital Life

    For me, the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveAutoRun key was set to 255 (disable all). I set it to 145 (decimal), logged off and back onto windows, and AutoPlay began to work again.


    For me, autoplay quit working after i installed VMware Workstation, so i suspect maybe it disabled autoplay.
