One of the latest MS updates has disabled autoplay on everything except CDs.


Run Regedit Go to HKEYCURRENTUSER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\Explorer. Delete the Key "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" Reboot the Computer.

Autoplay Repair Wizard

Autoplay disable/enable 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER. 2. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEYLOCALMACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom 3. To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1. 4. Restart your computer.

thanks for the advice fruit bat. i'm afraid the autoplay didnt seem to work tho. for some reason ipod touch 4g doesnt show in 'my computer' either so i can't access my photos at all, even thru itunes. (its definitely connected tho cos my ipod syncs when itunes is started.

any more clues at all, i'm stuck?
