camera not sending pics to dropbox when connecting to win 7 machine / not in autoplay > devices now

not sure if I made things worse.  we had a win 7 machine set up when we plug in our nikon camera, through autoplay? it would sent pics to dropbox.

'something' happened and now it just shows up in windows explorer / dropbox doesn't start

going into autoplay, the camera was in there a few times.

I went into regedit, found the entries for the camera and deleted them.

now we still get the camera in windows explorer, in the devices /  printer page... but not in autoplay devices at the bottom of the list of file types / devices.

any advice how to get the camera back in autoplay  devices list and or resolve the first problem of how to get autoplay to send the pics to dropbox when camera is plugged in?
