Memory stick and other USB devices no longer prompt for wizard

One of my users likes the pop up wizard that appears when you insert a memory stick or SD chip on Windows XP asking you about what you'd like to do with that device... such as "copy the files" from it, "just open the folder" or "do nothing".  It's the disk wizard with XP.  There is a check box that says "always do this" and he may have checked that off becuase he no longer is prompted to copy the files.  Is there a way to bring this feature back? For now I have him opening up My Computer then opening the drive it creates and moving the pictures/files manually.  BUT of course the user insists on using the wizard and I'm not sure how to get it back.

Have anyone dealt with this?

Have them put in the memory stick, when XP sees it, open My Computer and right click on the drive that the stick created, right click into properties and go to the Autoplay tab, you can set your options there
