    It is a small glitch, but whenever I have a USB flash drive plugged in when I start my Mac iPics loads. I am using OSX 10.5. Any ideas why, or how I can stop this?

    Thanks

    go to "system preferences>CDs & DVDs"
    and change the option for "When you insert a picture CD:"
    i don't know why, but the OS treats any drive the same way when it sees certain file types on it, even it says it will only do it for CDs

    Ok, I went into System Preferences, CDs and DVDs and set everything to IGNORE, but iPics still loads when I start the system with the flash drive plugged in (or when I plug it in after starting the computer). I know this is a small thing, but I want to understand what is going on. Do I need to log off (instead of just turning the system off) to get the changes to take?

    Thanks

    System Preferences -> Accounts -> Start up items -> Remove iPics if it's there

    either/or should work whichever suits you. So long as it refreshes the user cache then its all good :)

    Have you tried in preferences, and turning off any form of function which is enabled for autoloading with USB sticks etc?

    hope that helps?
