Autoplay not working on one device on Windows - 5 Apr 2014

So, for some reason somewhere around this week, Dropbox stopped importing pictures from my Moto G. Looking at the autoplay settings everything was setup correctly. I tried reseting everything with no avail, and I tried restarting the Shell Hardware Detection service without results.

So then I went to the Device Manager, I went to Portable Devices, and uninstalled my cellphone, listed as XT1032, for some reason.

Then I unplugged the phone, connected it again, let Windows detect it, and voilá! Autoplay is working again, and I got Dropbox to import my stuff! Yay!

So, the moral of the story is: if everything fails, reinstall.
