I have unchecked "Show import dialog when a memory card is detected", but anytime I plug in a device with memory (Phone and GPS for example) it is still autolaunching the import for lightroom. Is there something else I need to change?
You do not state what operating system you use.
In Windows you can set options in "Autoplay"
Well, there must be some issues with the Lightroom preferences, you may try and reset it back to defaults.
