Memory Stick

  jz 13:25 16 Apr 2006

Whenever I plug my memory stick into a USB socket of my PC, Windows XP brings up an Autoplay box, does a quick scan of the stick, then another box appears asking what action I want to take (eg copy pictures, play music, no action, etc). Is there a way to stop this from occuring evertime I plug it in? There isn't a little tick-box which says always do this action - I seem to recall that I get such a tick box when I put a CD in the drive, although even if I choose take no action and tick the box, it still comes up every time I put a CD.

Plug it in, go to My Computer, right-click the stick, Properties, Autoplay Tab and select mixed content and the action you want to do when it's plugged in.

Thanks BurrWalnut. That seems to help. After following your advice, it still does the annoying autoplay scan, but at least it no longer ask what action I want to take afterwards.
