    When you connect your iPad to your computer it should show up as an USB drive. Can you give us more info on what is happening with yours.

    I've moved your thread to our Help Section where you will receive a better response.

    Thank you Leelai! Fortunately I resolve the problem!. The problem was that I needed to copy photos from my ipad into my computer but AutoPlayer did not show up (and still don't). Here what I did: I right click My computer and clicked Explore and ....there it was! my ipad icon was there so copying the photos was easy.

    But the reason why AutoPlay does not show up when I connect my ipad to my PC is unknown to me.

    Thank you any way!

    Well that's great to hear.

    There is a setting for Auto Play....it must have already been turned off maybe. Enjoy!
