memory card insert - won't autoplay

After installing vmware server, I couldn't get memory card inserts into Windows XP to autoplay and bring up the "scanners and camera wizard". It's caused by vmware server putting a policy (registry) in place to disable autorun.

To fix:
delete: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutoRun
and HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutoRun
