External HD opens autoplay on start up
I bought a Toshiba P875-7200s last month. I have two external portable hard drives (a simple drive 250GB and a WD 250GB). The laptop has two powered USB 3 ports (for charging devices when the computer is off) and two USB 3 unpowered ports. I have the WD HD plugged into one of the powered ports and every time I start the computer the autoplay comes up asking what I want to do with the WD drive. I want to keep the autoplay function (opening CD, DVD, Photo files (which I do often)) but I want to stop this opening with my HD when I turn on the computer. I have seen numerous fixes for this on the web and have tried many of them, but none have worked. What do I do? I am not completely illiterate, but I am a 66 yo retired man who is not a geek either. I can follow instructions.
