For some reason my system has stopped bringing up the window that asks what you want to do, when new media or a device is put/plugged in.

Had a hunt and can't find anything.. any suggestions?

It also doesn't come up when a media is put into the optical drives. Thanks for the tip anyway.

Go into the properties of your drives and under the Autoplay tab, check that "Prompt me each time to choose an action" is checked.

If this doesn't work, have you recently installed any software that could have caused this, e.g. I installed a Nero Suite recently which included Nero Photoshow. I lost the Printer and Camera Wizard function and had to reconfigure to get it back.
