Re: what to do about this when using a card in my computer

If you answered this, I apologize but I didn't get your reply.  What version of windows are you running; 7, 8, 10 or what?

Your sd card has somehow been set up to play audio files through power dvd.  It's easy to fix but it's done differently in windows 7, 8 and 10.

Okay, I’ll have to remember to try it and see what happens.  I just wonder why it thinks it needs power dvd.  That used to happen to me when I plugged anything into these USB ports in this laptop.  Pam.

That still works.

I haven't tried this in later versions of Windows but in WWindws XP, holding down the shift key while a DVD or CD was loading stopped the file from playing and gave access to the software that was trying to play the file. Might be worth a try.
The nice thing about science is that it's true whether you believe in it or not.

In this laptop, if I put an sdhc card in its adapter into the slot in my computer, it will think I’m using power DVD.  It will say power DVD, and start playing what’s on the card.  I don’t know what player it is using to do that, probably power DVD’s player, but I can’t make it stop.  I can’t close the window, or anything.  If I am able to hear the screenreader underneath all that racket, I can go into my computer, and if I go all the way down to the bottom of what it is showing, I see “sdhc card” as the last one.  So it does show up as what it is.  But what do I do about it thinking it’s power DVD?  And how can I make it stop playing?  Pam.
