Set up autoplay

I have a firewire adapter to bring in my photos to my system. Is there a way to have that adapter use autoplay?

Thanks,

You can change autoplay settings.

Start> Control Panel> Hardware and Sound> AutoPlay

Set up autoplay-auto.jpg

See if Use AutoPlay for all media and devices box in upper left is checked

See if your firewire adapter shows in the list, if so you can change the defaults.
