For some time now I used to insert an SD card and it automatically detected it and imported the images into Windows Live Gallery and then deleted them from the SD card ready for a batch of new pictures to be taken on it. All of a sudden for no apparent reason, it no longer does this. I now have to click on My Computer, navigate to the card reader slot and manually open it and then copy and paste into Live Gallery.
In explorer, right click on the drive icon and choose properties. There will be a number of tabs. Choose the Autoplay tab. From the drop down list select your file type, in this case probably pictures, select the option to perform an action, and then choose an action from the selection underneath.
