    Help! I want to put a few files on a CD, like some pics a powerpoint presentation, some word documents and stuff and I want to know how to make the CD load automatically and open to a menu or start page. How do I do this? I would be willing to pay a little for this help. I need assistance as soon as possible.

    Thank you,

    Majik WiZz

    You need to create an Autorun.inf file in the root of the CD. This should contain the following entries:

    [AutoRun]
    open=wscript.exe MyScriptToLaunch.vbs
    icon=MyIconFile.ico

    Then create a VBS script to launch your HTML page or alternatively an executable or whatever can be used instead of wscript.exe .... in the "Open" line.

    The Icon line is the icon that will be displayed in explorer when you look at the CD-ROM drive containing your CD.

    I get the concept now, but I had to pay someone to help me do just that cause I didn't understand how to do it.

    Thanks again.
