Title says it all. Usually, I plug in my Canon to a USB, and a box opens asking me if I want to download pictures. That is no longer happening. I checked my Firefox Control Panel, and Auto Play is indeed selected. Any help? Thanks.

If that doesn't work
Are you able to view the camera as a mass storage device in explorer if you go to my computer.
Does Autoplay work for other devices such as USB hard drives etc
If you hold down shift when connecting the camera does Autoplay start
With the camera connected, go to Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager and check if there are any yellow triangles showing in the list
What version of windows are you using
the "net start shellhwdetection" did not work.
Answer to your questions:
1) I AM able to view the camera (and download pictures by right clicking)as a storage device n my computer 2) Autoplay DOES work for flash drives 3) Holding down Shift did not open up autoplay 4) NO yellow triangles in Device Manager 5) Windows 7 Professional, Version 6
Thanks again for your help! Hopefully, we'll figure this out!

I tried to replicate the problem with an old Canon powershot A610. I connected it to a win 7 pro x64 version 6 machine.
When you connect your camera is it listed in devices as mine was above and if so is it set to “ask me everytime”.
If it’s not listed in AutoPlay devices then I can only think this is down to a bad driver. The next step is to unistall the driver and see if the camera is then recognised correctly when you reconnect and install a new driver.
To do this, with the camera connected:
Now when you reconnect your camera, windows will need to install new device drivers for this device. You can let windows find them or use the cd that came with the camera. I would do whatever you did the first time around since they did work to begin with.
Now hopefully windows will recognise your camera and add it to the list of AutoPlay devices.
If not let me know
