Lightroom opens the import dialog box when a memory card or a storage device is detected.
You can disable Lightroom to do so.
Please follow the below steps.
> Open Lightroom
> Click on Lightroom > Preferences
> Go to General Tab
> Disable the option "Show import dialog when a memory card is detected
> Restart Lightroom and check.
Now Lightroom will not open the import dialog box after connecting a memory card.
Please let us know if this helps.
The box was NOT checked. My info is same as yours except it does not check for updates automatically.
I would prefer not to delete auto play for all media devices. I have windows 7. When I go into the control panel, I have the auto play options. Removable drive is NOT one of the options in the auto play options.
You should be able to change the 'default' for .LRCAT files- which is possibly why Lightroom is starting up.
This was on a Microsoft page- Change AutoPlay settings - Windows Help
Follow these steps to specify what should happen when you insert different types of digital media into your computer.
