When I open up the Wizard and click "next", it goes to the "options" screen, but when I click on "custom setup" or "next" (again) I get an error message that says "Error: An error occurred while setting scanner preferences. If the scanner is being used [which it isn't], wait for it to complete the task, and then try again."I'm using a Dell Dimension E510 with a Dell AIO 942.Please help, if at all possible. I've downloaded some file recovery programs, but have since removed them. I don't know what else could be interfering here.
I have a problem which many others seem to share, which is that the Scanner and Camera Wizard has suddenly ceased to appear automatically when downloading from a camera. Until a few days ago, I could plug my Olympus into my computer with a USB lead, and a box would crop up offering several courses of action. I would choose the one which permitted downloading the camera files to a folder. Next the Scanner and Camera Wizard would pop up, and after a few clicks, the camera files would be downloaded to my hard drive, and any unwanted shots would be deleted. I mention all this because some people appear to think that the Scanner and Camera Install Wizard is the same thing, but it isn't.Various cures have been put forward, like uninstalling Real Player 10, finding wiaacmgr.exe and renaming it to Scanner and Camera Wizard, and reinstalling the camera. I have tried these without success, and the wiaacmgr file is not present on either of my XP computers (one Pro, the other Home). I have also downloaded Autofix.exe, which found nothing wrong, and tried to persuade Autoplay to do the business.
Just got my first digital camera and all was good until I tried to download pictures to my pc. The microsoft scanner and camera wizard would not pop up when I attached my camera all settings and plugs checked). I found out this may be due to SP2 or Real Time, which I do not have. Has anyone else had this problem and what is the best and quickest fix.
Running every bl**dy time I plug in a USB mini hard drive? I've tried a system restore, searched some about autoplay- turned autoplay off and on, tried to find autoplay in GPEDIT, no joy there, irritating in that just the one USB drive does this, and it doesn't even have any pictures on it.
I seem to have "lost" the executable for the "scanner and camera wizard", which makes it easy to write digital images from my CF card to my hard drive. I know I can do some cutting and pasting to get the images there.
When I plug in my camera into a USB port, the Scanner and Camera wizard, which used to run, no longer runs, instead an explorer box pops up with the folder(s) on the memory stick. I can browse the memory stick, also. When I try to manually run the scanner and camera wizard, it tells me it cannot recognize the scanner or camera. Again, this was working, suddently it stopped.
I was wondering if any one knows of a free program that does the same thing as the "scanner & camera wizard" that microsoft offers in XP?? I suppose I can use the one on the CD that came with my camera- But I dont like that one. I want to be able to plug my camera by USB to the PC and have the pictures downloaded right away- See, I was using the "scanner & camera wizard" that came with my pc (win XP) & have tried to get it to recognise my camera as it USED to do before, but it stopped.I have tried doing some troubleshooting.
When you plug in a USB stick with some pictures on it (or you select Content Type: pictures in AutoPlay), you have the option to choose 'Copy pictures to a folder on my computer' when AutoPlay is enabled. Because I also have an external hard-drive, I have disabled AutoPlay.When I connected the external HD, it would always start to rowse/read the entire content of the HD (annoying pop-up I had to cancel) and then it would open the folder. As a consequence, I no longer have the option to choose 'Copy pictures to a folder on my computer', which would launch the Scanner and Camera wizard, when I plug in my USB stick with pictures on it. When I try to manually start the Scanner and Camera wizard (wiaacmgr.exe), I'm getting an error message indicating I don't have any scanners or camera's connected.
I'm having problems getting my wizard to come up when I use my card reader or if I put in a cd. I use to get the options in a box to read files, play , or to transfer photos. Now I don't get that option. I think it may be a file missing in my regestry.

How to get the MS Scanner and Camera Wizard to see my camera's Flashstick when it's inserted into the flashstick drive after installing a MS critical update? This is from the MS camera.chm.lnk:To link a program to a digital camera event Right-click the camera, and then click Properties. # We did that and it said "the properties for this camera are not available." What now? All the software for this HP camera is installed and updated. We never had a problem with it before. How do we get the MS scanner and camera wizard to come up now when the flash stick is installed?

OS : windows XP Pro sp3Problem : We have a machine that has lost Scanner and Camera wizard from autoplay a few days ago after we moved this PC from a local Workgroup to a Domain. After moving it to the domain with the new user, we copied the Windows profile from the old local user to to the new domain user. We currently do not have any group policies configured to disable auto play. When I log in with the username into the old local account the Wizard pops up fine. It is something related to the user/profile change. When we plug the camera into the computer autoplay works and recognises that the camera has pictures but there are no options to transfer pictures in the pop up box. i have tried a a few reg edits , we do not have Real Player, No luck with Windows autoplay repair wizard either.
You know when you plug your camera into your computer it brings up the picture transfer wizard. well my computer no longer does that and its kind of annoying. anyone know how to reactivate autoplay i guess? ive tried different usb ports and i even uninstalled usb root hubs and rebooted and let them reinstall themselves.

I want to migrate data from my old computer (98) to my new computer (XP) via serial cable. To do that I need to create a "Wizard Disk" for my old computer. I'm trying to use "File and Settings Transfer Wizard" on my new computer to create the Wizard CD, but that program doesn't recognize my CD-RW/DVD drive (E. The dropdown list used to select the output device includes choices for only F, G, H, and I, my 8-in-1 media drives. How can I get it to write to my CD on drive E?
I have just installed some anti virus software and during installation I got messages saying my registry had been damaged and i should log onto such-and-such site to download repair software and run it on my system. I am suspicious that if I do this I am exposing myself to total destruction. One of the messages has just popped up again and the site it directs me to is FixReg32.com.
Problems started was when i updated my Zone Alarm firewall, windows works absolutely fine no problems what so ever, then next time i reboot it does the same, this time problems are non-stop until about 10% then fine from there on in, then when it finishes repairing the drive it gets stuck at repairing unreadable security descriptions date stream.
It also said whilst recovering orphaned files insufficient disk space to recover lost files. It stopped for a while then carried on. After scan disk it restarted and wouldn't load windows, just got stuck on windows loading screen forever, eventually 15+ minutes i pressed reset as there was no disk activity.
I recently had a bad hard drive (It need the windows xp cd to boot) and saw that the problem was bad blocks. I decide to buy a new hard drive and use ghost to clone it. But, now i have the same problem with the new hard drive. After a while, i realize that obviously, if the disk was cloned, ONLY the information that can be copied was transfered to the other one.In conclusion, how can I resolve this issue without using system repair. the problem is that once i use this tool and then IE won't work. at last I had to format the drive.
When I first got the computer, when I plugged in a digital camera, I got a "found new hardware" pop-up, thereafter when plugging in the USB cable, the XP camera wizard popped up and the pictures were downloaded without a fuss. At some point it stopped working, and I've ended up using Picassa to get the images d'ld, but it won't let me add photos to an existing folder. I want the Windows wizard to work again, that was better.My new camera is not recognized at all, and if anything pops up, it's Explorer. I tried to install drivers from the disc that came with the camera, but keep getting a message that says I don't need to. I've tried to manually add the camera with the "add hardware" function, but it won't work.
What equipment and software do I need to place multiple live cameras in a house I plan to renovate and have the ability to view the screens from my residence in an adjoining county? I have a Dell 8300, 2.6ghz clock speed, 1 gig RAM, 80 gig hard drive. There are two lesser machines in my residence connected through a home network; cable modem, router, hub, then PC's.
When I put a CD/DVD in or plug in my digital camera it no longer runs automatically. The dinging sound that is offiliated with plugging in the camera occurs, but nothing pops up. Where do I go to change this setting so that it will pop up with my options as soon as I plug in the camera or put in a CD or DVD?
The ubiquitous svchost is causing problems on my computer. This problem has been going on a couple of months, slowly I've been getting a handle on it which seems to concern my scanner, although its been connected to the computer for years, it still works happily. I have not added anything, would have contributed to the problem, apart from regular updates from Microsoft, AVG etc. The version of svchost running is part of Windows Image Acquisition. It tends to be using somewhere between 6 and 20% of the processor. But the part which eventually causes the computer to slow down and crash is that it is adding about 100 handles a second, as seen in task manager. The computer gets slow, the screen doesn't refresh properly
