Solved Autoplay keeps running and searching

July 24, 2011 at 21:06:12
Specs: Windows XP, AMD 64/3GB
I have a beeping sound constantly on my winxp pro acer aspire computer. Bah dink bah dunk, bah dink bah dink...... bah dunk. It won't shut up and autorun keeps poping up with a flash light looking to run something (searching), but then just dissapears. The sounds keep on coming thought. Like when you get an error message without the message! And no it's not because the cpu is over heating or because the hardware is dusty!

":Bah dink bah dunk, bah dink bah dink...... bah dunk"

Like a door bell sound ?

The same as when you plug in another USB device ?
Dong ding (lower tone, higher tone), when you plug it in, Ding dong (higher tone, lower tone) when you unplug it ?
....

Card readers usually do not need third party drivers - they usually use generic drivers that are built into Windows.

Older card readers often can't read higher capacity memory cards or newer types of memory cards - there's nothing you can do about that - it's a limitation of their circuitry.
.....

Update - Most card readers connect to a USB port connection either internally or externally.

If you were getting a message when you plug in a memory card or something else that requires USB 2.0 support to work best This device will work better if you plugged it into a USB port that supports USB 2.0 specs or similar

-preferably it should be plugged into a USB port (or USB header on the mboard) that suppports USB 2.0 specs. If the mboard was made in about 2003 or later, it does.

- XP must have SP1 or later updates installed in it in order for it to support USB 2.0 controllers and devices.

- after you have installed XP from scratch, after Setup has finished, you must load the main chipset drivers for the mboard in order for Windows XP SP1 or later to actually install the USB 2.0 support.

Some virus may have left parts on it.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Thanks, It should have said Autoplay not Autorun. Any way I fixed the problem. I was told I needed to update the driver for my card reader. As luck would have it my card reader isn't 2.0 so when I installed the update it was for a 2.0 card reader and the thing just kept ping away. I uninstalled the update and the problem went away.
Thanks anyway!

Well you got the sounds down pat!!! Like I said above I ran Driver Detective and it said it had an update for my card reader, so I installed it. Later after doing some more checking I found it was for a 2.0 card reader which I don't have. Once I uninstalled the update everything was back to normal. I can't really say I have a lot of good things to say about Driver Detective though, I can install their suggested updates but they don't seem to be able to notice because they keep telling me to install them when I all ready have. Not very bright program if you ask me!
