    Autoplay Program (WinXP Pro SP1)

    My USB memory card reader/writer is set to autoplay the MS Scanner and Camera Wizard when I insert a card containing pictures from my camera. Is it possible to autoplay programs other than those listed in the Autoplay dialogue and if so, how?

    Cheers,
    Regards,
    PaulB

    You can use the Windows XP version of TweakUI to set up AutoPlay handlers, although I confess I have never attempted to use it with anything other than optical media (CD/DVD discs).

    Thanks, Mark. I wasn't aware of that aspect of TweakUI before. I noticed that Photoshop Elements has installed itself as an autoplay handler here for images, so I'll see if I can add my own application as a handler.

    You never know what functionality you will find buried under a rock (so to speak). I got that from Serdar Yegulalp's newsletter some time ago, or I would probably have never found out about it either.

    I would be interested in knowing if you get it to work for you!
