First time poster, appreciate in advance any help you can give me.
I recently purchased a Nikon Coolpix S9200 camera, and installed the View NX2 software that came with the camera. I then connected the camera via USB, it was recognized by Windows, and the message in the system tray said that it was installed and ready to use. The camera's manual suggested that the window for the Camera from the Devices & Printers section of control panel would then open, and there were instructions for how to change the settings for importing files. This did not happen, but I opened the device myself, and changed the camera's default program for importing images to the Nikon software (as described in the manual), and also changed the camera's default action upon being connected to import images (this was not in the manual, but this is how I would like the camera to behave).
However, when I connect the camera, the only thing that happens is that I get an audible indicator that it is connected. I don't even get the typical icon (USB cable with green check mark) in the system tray that a device is connected. The camera is definitely connected, as I can see it in Devices & Printers, I can browse the files in Windows Explorer, and I can transfer the files with the Nikon software, but I must manually open the software & initiate the transfer. So I do have workarounds to get my pictures off my camera, but my preference would be to have the Nikon software open up and start the transfer for me automatically.
I don't think that this is a general autoplay issue, because CD's, SD cards, & other devices I have (MP3 players, thumb drives, etc) all behave as I have set them to in the Autoplay options, and I have also followed the instructions in this forum (and other places on the internet) to check things like Shell Hardware Detection, registry values that would disable autorun, etc., and have not turned up any problems.
This one really has me stumped, as I rarely run into issues with connecting devices and getting them to behave the way I want, and when I do I am usually able to troubleshoot the problem. Again, thank you in advance for any assistance that you can give on this issue.
