How to change actions in "Windows can perform the same action each time you connect this device."?

When I turn on my VCR, connected to WinXP via a 1394 cable, I get the dialog mentioned in the question title.  This dialog lists several possible actions (e.g., "Capture and Edit video using ...").  It USED to include "Capture and Edit video using Adobe Premiere", but since I upgraded to Premiere Pro, Premiere is no longer listed as an option.  My question is- how do I edit the list of options given me in this dialog?  I assume this is kept in the Registry, but don't have a clue where...

For that matter, if (at some point in the future) I click the "Perform this action every time", and subsequently change my mind, how do I change THAT (since the dialog wouldn't come up anymore)?

Any and all help appreciated!

when you plug your vcr, can you see your device listed in your my computer ? if true, just right click on it, go to Autoplay tab, choose what ever you want it. But if you can't see the device in my computer, try to looking for in your device manager, again, choose properties, can you see autoplay tab there ?

It's not listed in My Computer and shows up as an "AVC Compliant DV Tape Recorder/Player" under devices, but with only "General" and "Driver" tabs under properties...

Good idea, though...

The problem is not solved, but I don't want to leave this open and it doesn't look like ANYONE else is going to bother to even attempt an answer, so I'm awarding you the points.
