Ah, we are probably speaking of different things. I guess "Autoplay" and
"Autorun" are not the same thing. You're talking about the feature (in =
case
you think it is one, obviously ;-)) that searches the whole medium and =
tries
to detect what it contains. But IIRC this process is not even started if
there is an Autorun.inf on the medium that defines other actions.
