    Hi All
    I am having a problem with my USB port and CD drive. I have tried putting a USB stick and card reader into the two USB slots, and a CD into the CD drive, and each time the prompt comes up, as it did before, asking me what action would I like to take. In the top grey box it says:
    "Windows can perform the same action each time you insert a disk or connect a device with this kind of file:
    Pictures
    What do you want Windows to do?"

    Then in the white box below it is completely blank, with no options, where as it used to give me several options.
    Can anyone help me please? I'd really appreciate it as I've got a photographic course to finish asap, and I need to get my photos on the PC!! My operating system is Windows XP, by the way!
    Many thanks!

    Do either of them show in My Computer allowing you to access/transfer them to your hard drive that way
