Hi.

When I plug in a USB into my computer, nothing happens. I can access it by going to My Computer>USB drive, but how can I get it to "autoplay"?

I have enabled the "autoplay" option under My Computer>Right click "Lexar">Autoplay.

Thanks in advance.

Well, you didn't tell us what version of Windows so not sure where to tell you where to look. But note your security program may be blocking this too - and for good reason. You should not have USB devices set to autoplay unless you have absolute control over every computer that device may be connected to and you are absolutely certain every computer that device attaches to is clean of malware.

Hi.

I'm running Windows XP Professional SP3. I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials.

When I plug in an USB on my other computer, a prompt box comes up asking me what I want to do. However, on this computer, nothing happens.

They're both running the same things btw.

Thanks.
