Maintain USB/Autorun choice

  brundle 19:52 12 May 2008

Someone I know who keeps adding different image editing/importing/library software to her PC keeps wondering why the software she `usually` uses doesn't pop up its importer when she plugs in a camera/usb drive/memory card etc (crucially she seems to be unable to remember precisely which of this ever-expanding catalogue of programs she `usually` uses).
I can't be there 24 hours a day to make sure the associations and actions don't change and I have advised her to remember which program she likes and stick with it or to use System Restore, to no avail - is there a way to choose which application /always/ opens when a device is plugged in, even if another program installs a tray-icon monitor (like Picasa, Corel, camera software etc etc etc)?

Hi Brundle
I do not have an answer if xp but if Vista;

Once the auto play appears,under General Options you have the facility to Set AutoPlay defaults this can be done in control panel also.

Though i doubt this is what your after.Would i be right, that you are looking for a software manager of sorts ?
