View Full Version : Scanner and camera wizard

31-10-2002, 08:51 PM
Am running WIN XP on a compaq laptop and recently purchased a SONY digital camera DSCP-71.
XP recognised the memory stick no problem and ran up the scanner and camera wizard - which we quite liked using.
Recently installed ULEAD PhotoImpact 8 and now when the camera is connected the Memory stick is simply recognised as another drive - the wizard has disappeared!
I can live with situation but I (and particularly my wife...) would really prefer the wizard.
Could someone advise any way I can reset/restore the wizard as the default in this situation??

Although I don't use XP, I suggest you exit from PhotoImpact and re-connect your camera to find out.

You could run the wizard manually. The path for the shortcut is C:\WINDOWS\system32\wiaacmgr.exe -SelectDevice

I don't know how to get it to run automatically.

Thanks heaps, after successfully getting the the wizard running manually as you suggested and with the camera connected I was able to select the option to always run the wizard! You're a genius - thanks a million.
