ok, my problem is that I want to take advantage of XP's autoplay function, with VCDs.

the problem being that I do not know how to tell XP to check for directory structure (easiest way to distinguish VCD).

I found this document on the MSDN site but I have no idea how to make any sense of it.

could someone please have a look and help me out..

please?! :)

Hi Rattler:


___Have you used the Help and Support function built into Windows XP yet? Use it, type in Autoplay and select “Change how your computer handles multimedia contentâ€. This will lead you into the application launching applet so that you may choose what you want to autoplay given a particular type file format.


___Good Luck

yeah I have given that a try but it hasn't really helped.

I have tried adding ".dat" (dat files are the mpeg files on a VCD) as a video type file so that it should start media player and play the .dat files but it still just opens the cd root in an explorer window, the same as it always has.

Anyone else got any ideas?
