    OH SHOOOOTTTTTTT!! I'm so sorry Ramesh. It's all my fault for not reading
    proper.

    Ok here's my problem. I slot my card into the card reader and Autoplay pops
    up. I then select the Import Photos (using windows) and a small rectangular
    box opens up on the bottom right hand side of the screen. Initially, it has
    the Options link (e.g. file's names/folder's name, rotate pic, delete pics
    after importing, etc). After a few uses (i was still exploring the options
    and not yet 'settled down'), around 5 i think, this programme just assumes
    that i want a certain set of options forever and decided not to ask me again
    before it starts importing.

    Meaning, when i click on Import Photos (using windows), it just scans the
    card, and then import photos immediately!!!!

    Is there any way I can edit the options? Please
    advise...........................

    I am having the same problem. Up until today, when I inserted my memory card
    with photos on it, I had several options. All of a sudden today, I only have
    one option, which is to open the folder to view files.

    I ran the regsvr commands, and now I have the import option back, which is
    good because that is the one I use most of the time.

    However, if I recall correctly I used to have one or two other options to
    choose from, I think one of them was to view pictures with windows photo
    viewer.

    How can I get all the options back?

    More importantly, why did I lose these options. The only thing I can think
    of is that I uninstalled a trial version of Adobe Photoshop CS3 in between
    when the autoplay was working and when it failed. Is this likely the source
    of this problem?

    Should I consider using system restore to go back to before I installed and
    uninstalled the Photoshop CS3 trial?

    I have a similar problem in which I want to move pictures from my compact
    card using Nikon View. I looked at the choices in the Control Panel under
    auto run, but I need to see Nikon View in order to select it as the default
    program to auto run, and of course it isn't there. It was a simple matter in
    XP, but I have looked every where in Vista and can't find the answer.

    I have a similar problem but your suggested fix did not help... When I attach
    my Canon camera the box comes up asking what program to use but when I select
    ACDSee9 nothing happens... If I choose Jasc Paint or Word it works fine ? Any
    help would be appreciated...

  7. Yours is a completely different problem. It appears that the ACDSee9 autoplay handler is broken. See if reinstalling the application fixes the problem.

    Hi, I've got teh same problem, I've tried the regsvr32 entries, unplugged the
    USB, etc.
    Still no dice.
    It used to work for about two months, but now I have to start up Windows
    Photo Gallery to manually import. Also, I noticed WPG will not exit normally
    (after I close, it would still be in memory). I have to go manually to kill
    it, otherwise I cannot restart WPG.
    Help!

    Ramesh:

    I have tried all of your suggestions in this thread and I still can't get
    autoplay to import my pictures from my canon rebel xti. Currenty, when I
    open the autoplay window, i have "import pictures using windows" selected for
    pictures and, what is weird, i have two identicle entries for my camera under
    "Devices". For both of these entries i have selected "import pictures using
    windows".

    Because the above hasn't worked since the first time, i usually go to
    start/computer where my camera is identified and right click than select
    import pictures.

    Any help is appreciated...thanks in advance...j
