Sorry I don't have an answer (I'm sure one'll come very quickly, though) but I wanted to suscribe to this thread to know when one comes.

-Funny how xp INSISTS on baby-walking you through just about everything you try to do, no matter what.
Couldn't they have set an option somewhere to disable all those annoying popups for users who've some experience with Windows ?

The first time I tried xp, at a friend's place, I thought I'd never get it for myself when I saw that it tried to do everything for me all the time. (The popup that came everytime I inserted a CD in, for example. Why not another one poping up everytime you try to use your right-click ?!!...)

Anyway, good luck finding an answer.

Go to Windows explorer or My Computer right click on the CD drive - go to the AutoPlay tab and configure it the way you want - you can select "DO Nothing" as an option.

I mostly keep it plug in, and it doesn't do anything when the camera is off, but once I turn it on, it pops up :(

yeah, why does Microsoft have to try to make everything soooo easy for newbie people but yet doesn't have an option on turn it off for the more experience people :(

oh, and it doesn't just pop up for CDs, it pops up also when you put in a new hardware :D

I don't have a video camera but a Sony dig.camera. If I turn it on and go to MyComputer there is a new drive H:\Sony memory stick. Rightclicking brings up the same options as for the CD-drive. Maybe you have something similar for your videocamera and can configure it there.

Do you have Tweak-UI from the Powertoys? Go there to MyComputer - Autoplay and uncheck: Enable autoplay for removable drives. Perhaps it works.

Perhaps you can do something in the registry directly. I attach a picture how the respective keys look on my computer (Arbeitsplatz=MyComputer). What if you delete the autoplayhandler that disturbs you or perhaps something to do with the atmosphere above there on mars;) ? No further idea, sorry.

The registry key to stop the CD drive from running by itself is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\
CurrentControlSet\
Services\Cdrom\AutoRun
(You give it a value of 0)

Maybe you could look around there for another "AutoRun" value that would be associated with your camera ?...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
