Any suggestions please,

As soon as i connect my USB memory stick and before i even get a chance to browse through the files, iPhoto launches automatically and instantly becomes unresponsive and have to force quit iPhoto.
How does one stop this automatic launch of an application?

QUOTE Thanks

Spotlight "Image Capture", and in there, change the preferences for launching iPhoto on detecting a camera stick. It should stop doing that.

If you do want iPhoto to launch on sticking in a camera, but not the USB stick, then you will need to reformat your USB stick for sometimes it think that the USB stick is a memory chip.
QUOTE Thanks
