where did my uplaod box go?

By mschelleann79 ·
I have windows vista.
I used to be abe to just plug in my camera and a box in the lower right corner would pop up and say upload photos.
Now when I plug it in it doesn't show anything.
I am still able to plug in mp3s and ipods and my iphone. Can anyone help me fix this or am I SOL?!

almost entirely. Because malware runs very well off of USB Flash drives or whatever (digital picture frames, cameras, you name it). This has been a problem since Autorun was introduced (at least since Win 95).

It may seem a bit inconvenient, but it is more convenient than having everything on your system trashed by malware.
