The first does not work. The third may lead somewhere, but the posts themselves do not.

If you had read further (#8), you would understand that I am aware of that option, and choose not to use it because I want to disable autoplay for SD cards only.

That seems to be disabling autoplay entirely, which I do not want to do.

However, in the registry, I found the folder CancelAutoplay, which may be useful. Still playing with that...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoplayHandlers\CancelAutopla y

Well thanks for the help guys. Hopefully someone will find an answer...
I'm giving up for now, and suggesting to Microsoft that device specific autoplay disabling become a feature of windows 8.

Edit1: If I can find where to suggest it, that is...
