    My windows 7 laptop is set to autoplay but does not do so.

    Have to go to computer to see usb flash drive or camera and then open.

    Settings appear the same as my desktop.

    What simple step am I missing.

    You can try, as a first step, to go back into the control panel's autoplay section and reset it back to default.
    There may, or may not, be some security suits that keep autoplay in check. See if this is relevant to your situation.
    If it is your may need to do some tweaking to the security suit in question.

    Frankly your better off with it disabled from a security standpoint.
    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.
