Hi,

I have the preference "Show import dialog when a memory card is detected" checked off.
But, everytime I reboot the my laptop, and I connect something to the usb (external hd, memory cards, flash drive), Lightroom would start and the import dialog would show up.

I check the preference and the "Show import dialog when a memory card is detected" was checked on by itself. When I checked it off and connect something to the usb port, it would be fine. Lightroom did not start.

Only after I turn on the laptop or a reboot, the option would be checked on again.

How do I disabled "Show import dialog when a memory card is detected" forever?

Thanks

Uncheck it, restart, then check again. Sometimes LR2 has caching issues that prevent it from changing settings properly. Not opening LR2 after changing the setting should work, if not you'll need to reset the preferences file.

I tried to uncheck it. restart lightroom, the box is back to be check.
tried this many times, i would uncheck and restart, but when i check the preference, it's always checked.

This happen after I have to re install LR2 from a clean windows install.
It wasn't like this before.

There have been many reports of this problem in several Lightroom forums. It seems to be a bug of some sort and as far as I know no one has come up with a fix for it.

What version of Windows are you running?

By restart I meant restart your computer. If that doesn't work then you need to get rid of the preference file (properly, a few threads about this are on this forum, a quick search should help).

Why are you still putting the "caching" excuse out there. This is clearly a known LR 2.4 bug... see the relevant links in a recent thread titled LR 2.4 annoyance...

First, never said it wasn't LR2.4 at fault, rather trying to help OP by giving him some suggestions on workarounds that have worked in the past for me. If you want to be helpful, go on and give OP a link to a SOLUTION. If not, stop trolling, it's annoying. Though it's not technically a caching issue, that's the best way to describe it to someone with an average technical knowledge of computing.

Another thing OP can try is disabling UAC (requires restart) to turn off the setting, restart the computer, and see if it works. If it works and the setting stays off, reenable UAC.


EDIT: I've seen that before, all four pages of useless banter. And then three posts that agree with everything I've mentioned.
