    I just reloaded my Windows XP professional SP3 on a fresh hard drive because of issues in which a windows update crashed my boot file and computer went into a boot loop. Anyway that is not the problem.

    In the past, when I plugged in a USB device,whether it be a thumbdrive or a camera the device was automatically recognized and a window popped up asking what I wanted to do. the choices were things like; do you want to view the files? Do you want to download to a folder on your computer? Do you want to open pictures with windows picture and fax viewer? Etc.

    Now if I plug in my camera windows recognizes it as a Sony camera and the model but I do not get the prompt of what to do.

    I believe it is just a setting but I am not finding it and when I try to open camera and fax wizard manually it says the device is not connected.

    How do I change these settings.

    Did you have on the old hard drive the specific softwarefor the camera, if so and you have not on this that could be one of the answers, to device not connected.
    Check Device Manager and ensure all your USB hubs are without any warning indications.

    To change how your computer handles multimedia content
    1. Open My Computer.
    2. Under Devices with Removable Storage, right-click the device you want, such as a digital camera or CD-ROM drive, and then click Properties.
    3. On the Autoplay tab, click the multimedia content type you want to change.
    4. Under Actions, click the action you want Windows to perform when it detects the media

    I think I covered that in my first post.
    His main problem is the lack of the "Select an Action to Perform" .
