    I have been using Picasa to automatically import photos from my digital camera. I would prefer that not to happen anymore. I have stopped Picasa Media Detector from starting on startup but Picasa still opens automatically when I insert my cable from my camera to the my desktop (xp home).
    What can I do to stop Picasa from behaving this way and having the default Windows program to import my photos?
    Thank you for looking.

    If you get a mass storage drive letter when you connect your camera you can try connecting the camera so the drive letter is present, then right click on the drive and choose properties and in properties select the autoplay tab and specifically select an action for the type of files present such as open folder for viewing in windows explorer or whatever else is available.

    If that doesn't work let us know, maybe media detector is running as a service and that needs to be shut down or something.
