I need the make cds with autorun menu

Postby yamawho on Wed Nov 27, 2002 8:18 pm

I need to make some cd's for work.
I need to have a autorun so a menu appears and selections can be made like Manuels, Videos, Photos etc.

I use Nero and also have CDMate.

Anyone know how to do this ?
The more I figure out, the more I realize how little I know.

just create an autorun program, which you put on the cd, then you create an "Autorun.inf" file containing the text:

open=<your path/filename here>.exe

and burn the "autorun.inf" file to the root of the cd filesystem.

Usually the program is called autorun.exe, so then the text would be:


The autorun.exe file would then have to be in the root of the cd also.

Visual Basic is very easy to learn and you can quickly and easily make autorun programs in it. If you use VB, however remember to place the VB runtime files on the cd as well (in the same directory as the program)
