Does AutoRun work with USB drives?

Postby Typhoon Software » Mon Feb 06, 2006 11:42 pm

There are 2 ways to make USB drives Autoplay.

1) Install software on the user’s computer prior to attaching the USB device. The software will monitor your USB ports, waiting for a device to be attached and when it does the software will load the files in the same manner as they would for a CD-ROM.

2) Purchase a USB device created specifically to Autoplay on a PC. There aren’t many companies that produce these, but they are available.

I should note that Vista allows USB devices to autoplay by default, so your AutoRun Typhoon presentation on a USB device on Vista will work the same as if the user inserted a CD.
