I made a big mistake on my new PC.

I plugged my camcorder into my PC to capture video using MyDVD Plus, and when the PC found the camcorder it gave me a menu, asking me what to do with the new device. I clicked on Take No Action, then "Don't show this screen again."

This was apparently a dumb move. Before, the software found the device and allowed me to capture video. Now, it does not find the device, and all the capturing action buttons in MyDVD are greyed. I looked at sonic's tech help screen, and there was something involving alteration of msconfig which I then duly did (unclicking a certain item), but it didn't help.

How do I get my PC to ask me what to do with it again? I mean, how do I undo the "do not ask me again" that I clicked? Whenever I plug my camcorder in now, the PC does nothing. It does not recognize it. I assume that's what's causing the software to not find the camcorder.

Edit: I should add that when I go into My Computer and Hardware, the PC finds the camcorder.

Thanks.

Go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager. Look for an device with an error and uninstall it by right-clicking on it.

Note, that you may have to run the installation CD or driver before plugging in the camera the next time.
