Description Audrius Meskauskas 2009-06-29 07:09:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Every time I put in the SD card with some images, a question pops out asking if I want to import photos. I cannot get rid of it, even if I check the checkbox "always perform this action" and then select "no". I think it is enough to ask once and leave the power users who are capable to copy files themselves in peace if they do not want this extended functionality.

I personally understand this way of aggressive marketing as inappropriate attitude, something from that people try to go away when the migrate from Windows. Well, it may be just a trivial bug as well.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert an SD card that has bee in the camera (the folder structure is attached). The issue is detected on a computer with the built-in card reader.
2. The question "There are photos on this card (..)" will appear.
3. Check the checkbox "Always perform this action" and then select "No".
4. Unmount the card, remove it, then put again. Same message appears.
Actual results:
The "Import photos" dialog appears every time when the card with images is inserted. There is no way to get rid of it.

Expected results:
After selecting "No" and "Perform always", the box should not keep popping out every time the card is inserted. Or, if you find confusing, add a checkbox "Do not show this again".
