Automatic card reader

  little ernie 10:19 06 Oct 2006

I have two networked computers. On the main one I have a card reader built into my printer and when I put a card into one of the slots a menu appears on the screen asking me what I would like to do with the photo's on the card.
When I put a card into my other computer's card reader I have to open my Adobe programme and 'get photo's'. Can anyone tell what buttons to click on my 'other' computer?

In explorer right-click on the drive letter for the reader and choose properties and then the Autoplay tab. Select a type of file and then an action for that type.

Hi ventanas, The computer I was asking about has a USB card reader as well as the printer. What you suggested worked for the card reader but didn't work for the printer. Thanks for the answer, I'll have to use the card reader in future.
