Someone asked me to reinstall their operating system for them, which I did (no genius there and all went smoothly).
However, I kinda stuffed up in that it used to do something which it no longer does.
This person uses their PC primarily for transferring pictures off of their camera and onto the desktop. They have a USB card reader thingy which they used to simply stick the camera's memory card into and Windows XP would immediately recognise that it had been inserted - and open a window to show the contents of the card automatically.
Now, I know the card reader is installed correctly, and operates properly thru Windows Explore/My Computer - files can be transferred to/from it without a hitch. But this person does not want to have to navigate to the card's contents manually - they want <b>Windows to recognise the card being inserted, and to open a window displaying the contents automatically</b>, just as it did before I played around with it.
It was not third party software, as I have spoken to the original guy who installed the card reader - even he can't remember what he did, and says it's some function of Windows somewhere.
Anyone know if it can be reconfigured?
