Vista Home Premium
Up to now when I plug my Canon G7 into the usb port it would bring up a drop down giving me options as to what I want to do with the photos before downloading them.
This drop down is not happening.
I now have to start/explore a go find the camera.
Fixing this problem may solve others I have .
Camera is not the problem I am sure.

Plug the camera in again.

Go to my computer, right click on the Camera, choose Properties.

In Properties, look for the AutoPlay tab and make sure that the radio button at the bottom "Prompt me each time to choose an action" is selected.

In Vista, plug your camera in, go to Start Orb>Control Panel>Autoplay and check the listing for your camera and set it for what you want, click ok.
