Windows 7: Autoplay....quit

After installing a new front panel card reader/USB 2.0 and 3.0 and audio panel, I do not get the auto play window pop up asking me what to do. In Autoplay options I have it set thus, and it never shows connected devices.

See if this helps, Gary.

Open an elevated command prompt. Type net start shellhwdetection > Enter.

Or, from the Services console, locate Shell Hardware Detection and make sure that the Startup type is set to “Automatic” and the Service status is “Started”.

I should add I installed a driver for this reader panel and it was Realtek USB driver. If I remember the auto play issues started after that, so I uninstalled it.
