USB stick prompt on startup

  gazmix 15:38 23 Aug 08

I have 2 USB sticks. 1 of them, when i insert it, the Window opens up E:/ & shows the folders in it!

The other, i have to double click 'my computer' & then open the drive from there!

Before, both sticks, on the same pc, when inserting them, opened a window asking me what i wanted to do!, which format i wanted to open them with etc!

This all of a sudden has happened & i don't know why!

Can anyone help me to set them so both open in the same way!

Put in faulty stick - My computer - right click the drive properties - autoplay tab - prompt me each time...

I tried this, applied & ok & it doesn't happen.

The dropdown box says Music Files, i tried each & nothing!Also when i insert the stick, it makes drive noise, similar to when i click on D-drive.

The drive parameters have been changed

The drive parameters have been changed, i.e the boot block

woodchip, so what does that mean & what do i do?

the other stick i have opens with the page showing my files E:\
i'd like them both to do what they initialy did, but for some reason, don't!!
