I have my default import settings it the import module set to my preferences. Has worked fine but, all the sudden LR does not change to the import menu when a disc is installed and when I load it my settings are not selected. I have to click on the icon and choose my preset. I have reinstalled and set my preference to open when a disc is inserted. Still no change. Any ideas?

I can't help Alan but I bet the folks here: http://forums.adobe.co​m/community/lightroom (external link) can. Seems like a lively discussion on many topics going on there.

Uninstalling then reinstalling Lightroom will not change your Lightroom Preferences since the preference file, and a few other settings and files, are not deleted when you uninstall Lightroom.

To reset Lightroom to its defaults you need to close the application down, then do a search on your C:\ drive for a file named Lightroom 3 Preferences.AGPREFS and delete it.

When you restart Lightroom it will create a new AGPREFS file. The AGPREFS file is stored in the C:\Users\[USER NAME]\AppData\Roaming\​Adobe\Lightroom\Prefer​ences file path on a Windows computer. By default the AppData folder is hidden so you'd first have to configure Windows to Show Hidden Folders and Files before you can see the file.

So the steps I'd take is to delete your existing AGPREFS file, restart Lightroom and reconfigure it to your requirements, and it should work without problems.

Once you delete the plist file all your Lightroom Preferences will revert to how they were right out the box. Now you'll need to import a file, and reconfigure your Import Dialog box to apply the preset you want, then confirm by pressing the Import button. As far as I can tell, the setting is "sticky" so you need to import at least 1 photo with the setting/preset you want and any subsequent imports will have the same settings until you change it.
