Hey Richard,
No, I think the previous message was using that as an example program.  I've not tried to create this .inf file yet... let me know if you find a total solution!  I'll reply back if I can confirm this working.
Cheers!

I've done quite a bit of research on this...
 
There are programs that you can use to autorun a USB drive - but most need to be first installed/run on a computer.
 
Hackers have used USB drives for awhile to autorun features while, for example, the password protect [ctrl-alt-delete] screen is up.
 
They do this by "flashing" the firmware on the USB drive to fool XP into thinking the USB drive is a non-removable device.  With the hardware ID and manufacturers ID changed (to, for example, an IDE ROM drive), XP will allow the drive to autorun and autoplay.
 
Questions:
 
1 - How does one "flash" a USB drive to change the firmware?
2 - Which firmware will work?
3 - Any special hardware required?

Hey Will,
Thanks for the insight... I've heard/read the same.  Please let me know if you find answers to those 3 questions!  We can Flash a CMOS..  there should be a way to Flash a USB, right?

Thanks for the reply,
 
I am in the process of ordering custom USB sticks from Japan, that will autoplay, and have a protected memory area.  I need these for work.
 
There is a program out there called "slurp."  This program was meant for an IPOD to automatically backup, say, /documents and settings/*.*
 
I need a program that will autorun on my USB stick, and that will automatically copy certain directories in a user's account, such as internet settings, favorites, cookies, temp files, etc.
 
Any programmers out there that can help?  I suppose a batch file could work, but a compiled .com or .exe would work best.

I today wrote an '.exe in Delphi-5 that copis files off the C drive into a USB (or anywhere really I suppose) then moves the files in the PC to a "backed up" folder.
 
It is part of an automated backup system for some datalogging stuff we do.
 
Only small problem is that I too cannot get the USB drive to autorun the exe.  
 
Let me know if you can help or are interested.
 
Regards - Richard

Not a true autorun but it works for what I am trying to.  If you add an Action=[text you want] line in your autorun it will add an item to ‘What do you want Windows to do?’
 
Example autorun.inf:
 
[autorun]  
Open=opera\win32\opera.exe
Action=Start Portable Opera
Icon=opera\win32\opera.exe

Autorun Usb v1.0 works just fine
 
or u can even write up vbs to loop through drive every 10second or so but this would be lousy way.
 
any autorun usb is handy one

I just wrote this application in the past few days. Should alleviate any problems you have with USB Autorunning much like the other program that was posted. However, I'm not sure if the other one works with multiple USB devices - this one does. If you have any problems please reply to this thread or send me an e-mail or MSN to brandon-at-kmgsoftware-dot-com.
 
Enjoy!

well, I spent a few moments browsing around and came up with this following solution
Works on all windows systems (if you find one it doesnt, use the existing AutoRun for that system, and place that there)
[autorun]
OPEN=MobileZeroLauncher.exe MobileZero.hta
shellexecute=MobileZeroLauncher.exe MobileZero.hta
shell\Auto=&Autoplay
shell\Auto\command=MobileZeroLauncher.exe MobileZero.hta
ICON=mobilezero.ico
shell=Auto
Explination:
default open for all other versions of windows
tell shellexec (not supported in ALL versions of windows, but it is in XP, and thats the one we're having problems with)
set the menu item "&Autoplay" to the verb "auto"
set the command of the verb "Auto" to the exe
set the icon
set the verb auto to be the default action when the drive is double-clicked
should work, worked fine on my end
ALTHOUGH, if you ever right-click the drive, and hit "open as portable media device" the effects of this can be disabled.

 
This does work, in a way. It only seems to work for me when I double-click the icon in Explorer, it runs what I tell it to.
 
OR, when I right-click the drive in Explorer, there is another Autoplay context item:

 
Which does the actual Autoplay of the program I setup to launch.
 
Now we just need to get the non-U3 drives to become U3-like...

I found a program from Microsoft themselves that sort of does this for you guys.
 
It will use an Autorun.INF and will also popup, but it will popup whatever program you tell it to in the AutoPlay dialog...I'm sure someone else who knows more about the innards of AutoPlay could make it come up without AutoPlay, and just launch the app, but I will provide you with the program provided autorun.inf, with my programs inserted instead.
 
Code:
[autorun]
action=Launch Portable Start Menu
icon=..\Apps\Icon1.ico
open=..\Apps\PStart.exe
label=FreeSpace
includeRuntimeComponents=True

 
Hope this helps.
