    automatic start service?

    Sorry for the poor thread title... what I mean is...
    I have a Win XP machine that has suddenly stopped recognizing new hardware, plugged in devices etc.
    There is a service or something in windows that alerts you when a new device is plugged in and asks you what you want to do with it... Same as when you put in a disk, it asks what you want to open it with...
    Im tired and strung out from work and I just can't remember how to enable this service again...
    Any help would be appreciated...

    Man, am I going to feel stupid when i realize I already know the answer, but cant come up with it on my own without a reminder

    Are you thinking of the Plug and Play service?

    In run type in services.msc. Scroll down to Plug and Play. Click on properties and you can start and/or enable the service from there.

    Edit: This is probably not what you want then.

    Auto play is enabled in Device Manager under DVD/CD devices.

    I look around for the USB problem.

    Found this in another forum. It has a link to a possible fix in the first reply. Maybe it will help.

    I've also been reading that real player can cause a conflict with the camera wizard. If he has real player install check to see if realsched.exe is running. If it is disable the task and see if the camera wizard will work.
