downloading photos from memory cards in Windows 7.

Windows XP was great for downloading pics, eventhough it would freeze at times. Vista was horrible. Windows 7 is very confusing. When I insert a cd-r to copy pics from memory cards, it promps to name the cd if you want, I don't so I just click next, than it gives me a blank/shaded screen, and a message at the bottom right saying there are pics ready to download, but when I click on it, it does not do anything. It send the photos to the C drive and there is where I can copy to the cd, horrible.  Leave it like Windows XP nice and simple. Tell me what I am doing wrong

Hi chanoc,
 
Do you get any auto play window when you insert memory card in your computer?
 
You can change the settings Windows uses when importing pictures and videos from cameras, portable devices, scanners, or data CDs or DVDs. These import settings determine how pictures and videos are named and organized when you import them to your computer
