    I am curious about the process for adding a menu which loads when a CD is inserted into the drive. Specifically, can I create a graphic interface and load it through the use of an autorun.inf file on my CD? If possible, how do I intergrate elements such as background, buttons, and sounds?

    I have been searching for this info online, but the best that I can find are programs which provide an interface, writing the script for the author. How does one script a menu, incorporating the various elements, into the autorun/autoplay file?

    Would a graphic interface require me to write a stand-alone executable which would then be called by the autorun.inf file? Is that how it is done?

    Bummer. I was hoping to keep it simple. So, the best I can hope for is to open a system applications by calling a specific file on my CD during insertion, that is, short of writing my own application (custom menu)?

    Boris, have you any links in your pocket for a good site or page covering this subject? I have toyed with C/C++ but never this. Is there a very good source for info regarding this and other multimedia issues? I gave it a good search today, but I wasn't impressed with those sites I had seen.
