I would like to create cds that start up automatically when inserted in a cd
rom drive, as many software programs do. I am using an hp 8200e cd-writer plus.
Where can I get information on how to do this?

Re: autorun

If the CD you are creating has a proper autorun.inf then the workstation needs
the CD properties set to autorun. It should be that simple.

Check a CD that works and look at the contents of the autorun.inf file.

If it does not work on a machine you are testing with open my computer and
check the properties of the CD.
