AutoPlay with Digital Camera

  Snakey 20:58 15 Feb 2005

When I installed my new digital camera Windows XP Home would prompt me to transfer the photos to My Pictures when I plugged it in to the USB port. Suddenly this AutoPlay function has stopped working. I have reinstalled the Camera Driver and Software. I have checked the AutoPlay properties but still no joy.

Please Help.

I've come across this problem a few times and invariably cure it by uninstalling Real Player. I now use an alternative to Real Player from here click here

I had this problem too. The camera was seen as an external drive (E:), not as a camera.

It appears that the version 10 of RealPlayer can cause this kind of thing. The solution is to turn off RealPlayer's automatic update service, and to stop the scheduler program "realsched.exe" from starting up when you start XP.

I followed the advice given by "Omar" here: click here

Hope this helps!
