How about a "Removable drives" type option?

In that case, what you did would be a good workaround.

Tons of thanks

In spite of having formatted my PC twice and taking help from manufacturers, nothing worked as a cheap application known as 'Registry Reviver' played havoc with my registry as soon as I installed it after re-formatting. Totally exhausted, I used the following link sent by you. AutoPlay - Enable or Disable
This corrected my registry. I removed 'Registry Reviver' from my machine and now everything is fine. All my gadgets are being recognized by the PC. I love my PC and your forum provided much needed help to me when I had lost all hopes.

Hello jacky,

Does the removable USB show up in Auto Play listed under Devices while connected?

Under the Autoplay list, all written "Choose a default" since the beginning, just the same if I click 'Reset all defaults' + Save button. When inserted USB there's no popup at all, but all visible in Windows Explorer.
Should I fill 'Ask me every time', but I cannot see USB options there..?

If you see anything for removable drives, you could set it to "Ask me every time" to see if that may help.

If you have AutoPlay enabled and turned on, then double check to see if you may have any group policies enabled that could affect AutoPlay.

Does this happen with all USB flash drives, or just this one?

This happen for any USB flash includes Removable Disk (External USB plug).

Removable drives? - None in the list, that means I have to set in the Local Group Policy Editor, then click dot Disabled.. is it right? (Currently at the setting 'Not Configured').

What is this 'cause I installed TuneUp Utilities or Acronis? Because once installed, the popup no longer appear.

You would want group policy settings set to "Not Configured" instead.

It wouldn't hurt to check to see if TuneUp Utilities may have some setting that could affect AutoPlay. I don't think Acronis would be of issue for this.
