    USB & SD cards are not auto opening

    Hi Forum,
    I have had issues with USB and SD cards not "auto" playing on my desktop HP Pavilion p6620f running Window10. This has been an issue for a long time, I've just been tolerating the situation.
    Any USB and any SD card shows up in My PC as do all the drives. Access can be gained from here , so there is not an issue with bad cards, etc.
    The first driver listed from Device Manager for Universal Serial Bus controllers is "Realtek USB 2.0 Card Reader -driver date 1/19/2017- Ver. 10.0.14393.31233 , which I down loaded and installed hoping this would fix my issue . It did not.
    I have tried to use some of the other possibles and still no luck.
    I have googled this issue and have tried all of the proposed remedies with no success.
    A side note . i have a Asus laptop with Windows 10 installed and I have no issues with the same USB drive and SD card.
    Any help?

    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, Win7 Home, Linux Mint

    There's also the AutoPlay item in the Control Panel.

    Tried the command prompt Admin. Did not work. Followed instructions and did a reboot . Still the same . No auto start.

    Sorry to hear that, I had the same problem and that's what worked for me. Try Berton's suggestion.
