importing photos from an old camera

"'I cannot change any import settings, there is no small window when the AutoPlay window is open nor when I start importing
the pictures from the camera.'

That's because there isn't one.

Open Windows Photo Gallery, click on File->Options. Select tab called "Import"

Import settings are hidden away in there."

This is great info, and the only thing that has worked for me! After unsuccessfully trying to import photos from my HP Photosmart M517 using the software that came with the camera, I found your post. Your instructions worked perfectly, and I was able to import the photos directly from the camera to my laptop using a USB cable. Thank you so much!!
