External HDD Autorun

Recommended Posts

My new Lacie external multimedia HDD doesn't start automatically when I connect it to my Vista pc. I need to go to Computer first and access it from there. It does run automatically on my XP pc.

 

I know it's not that big of a hassle, but if someone could help me fix this, I'd be even happier.

I can't really comment on how to do it, but this default behaviour is actually a Good Thing and is an improvement in security over XP. A lot of malware spread via removable media using Windows' autorun "feature". Among the first things I do on a fresh XP installation is disable autorun.

This statement is false.
