5Mk2 doesn't initiate auto start in new Win 7 computer.
Aug 6, 2012

I have just bought a new computer running Win 7. When I connect my 5Mk2 to the USB3 port via the camera direct cable, the "Auto Start" menu doesn't come up. The USB beep sounds when the connection is made. I can "see" the camera in PICASA and down load the images OK, plus the Device manager can also see the camera. Under "portable devices", the computer recognises the camera with a correctly tiled icon.

I have tagged the "Auto Start" box in the control panel with "Ask me every time", but to no avail. If I plug a thumb drive into the same port, the "Auto Play" dialogue box comes up fine.

It is a very easy work around, but it is annoying that the computer is not doing the right thing, however after being involved with them for many years I shouldn't be surprised!
