    I've an intro screen which I want to make pop up when a flash drive is inserted into any computer. (The intro screen can be flash or html.)

    I know U3 drives can do this, but as far as I'm aware they use different (or physically partitioned hardware) to normal flash drives.

    I used to have a Geek Squad flash drive which booted up when you inserted it. Stupidly I deleted this software on it and have used the full space on the drive normally ever since.

    I've loaded "ini" files on it, but as it's not recognised as a CD it does not auto-boot.

    Any ideas?

    You can enable Autostart on any drive, and if you have an Autorun.ini on the drive in question, it'll run the application specified.
