SD Card autoplay windows 7 not working

July 30, 2014 at 08:18:04
Specs: Windows 7, 4 gb
I used to put in a SD card and a window would pop up in the lower right hand corner and I could import into a folder, etc. That is not working. NO box comes up. I can see the SD card when I goto my computer and the files I reset auto run and the default for JPG's etc is window viewer. How do I get it to work again. Thank you

Go into Control Panel and click on the AutoPlay option. Find the SD card entry and in the drop down option menu, select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer.

I can view the files but I want to restore the box in the lower right hand corner that appears when a SD card is inserted. That box no longer comes up? I don't know what it is called but it isn't there anymore. Thanks

Maybe try a system restore to BEFORE the problem...see if that works for you. You may have to download the latest windows updates after that....

That didn't work. I would like to know what that box is named/called that used to pop up in the lower right hand corner when an sd card was inserted.

I only know enough to maybe help you track it down: The main
purpose of the popup might have been to provide a way to be
sure all data was transferred before removing the card. You
click on a button in the popup and any data that hasn't been
transferred is transferred, and all files are closed. Was that it?

Also, the part of the Taskbar at the right is called the "System Tray".
It used to have a box around it that made it look kinda like a tray.

It sure sounds like it. If I remember it also allowed you to name the file and I think it showed a path. I think I need to stick my SD card in a computer that works LOL.
Where did it go and what is it called I don't know, but how to bring it back that is the question. Thanks Jeff

""Check if the Group Policy Setting has been disabled for the Autoplay feature.
Note: Changing Group Policy Setting applies to only Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows Enterprise editions.
1. Click Start and in the Search box, type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
Now browse to Computer Configuration\ Administrative Templates\ Windows Components\ Autoplay Policies\ Turn off Autoplay.
2. To Enable:
Change the value of Turn off Autoplay to Disabled.
Note: This will enable the Autoplay feature.""

This worked for me running Windows7 Pro 64bit
