I am interested in this topic because I am trying to find out if I should install Vista update KB971029 which says:
This update disables AutoRun entries in AutoPlay, and displays only entries that are populated from CD and DVD drives. Effectively, this prevents AutoPlay from working with USB media.
I bought My Passport and installed smartware and I am wondering if it will still work if I install the Vista update.
Ohadshi says he is having problems : can you check if you installed this Vista update?
Mabkay replies to this :
I just tried Win7 x86 SP1 and it has autorun enabled by default. I just disabled it and as I never use autorun. Latest version of Avira AV has autorun disabled by default.
So what should this be telling us? Is WD passport still working - are you using smartware??
