AutoPlay in XP

  2can 10:55 11 Jun 2004

I have 2 computers identically set up with XP... I use a FujiFilm digital camera with a smartmedia card... on one computer when I plug in.. the autoplay works and asks what I would like to do with the contents... on the other machine.. nothing.... I have tried stting autplay by using properties when the camera is connected..but this doesn't work the next time the camera is connected...any ideas?

From Help and Support:

Open My Computer.

Under Devices with Removable Storage, right-click the device you want, such as a digital camera or CD-ROM drive, and then click Properties.

On the AutoPlay tab, click the multimedia content type you want to change.

Under Actions, click the action you want Windows to perform when it detects the media type you selected.
