You have your terminology incorrect here, the term is auto play,
which all operating systems do from Linux to windows to mac. i have
played dvd's of games and auto play seems to work none the less. What
windows OS are you talking about. I am on windows 7 ultimate 64bit
As for my "word use", having survived 3 strokes tend to mess thing up
sometimes on what are the correct words and phrases are the correct
ones to use. That is way I do not like to write documentation or even
take notes at meetings. So please forgive me improper word usage or
terminology. If it passes my spell checker in Thunderbird, I may not
catch the error.
There is a MS security patch that prevents certain "auto play" options
from happening. This was created to stop those nasties from
"auto-installing" when you insert a CD or DVD into a drive, or the
same with Thumb-drives or camera cards.
I do not know all the ins-and-outs of what the patch does, but it was
meant to stop users from having their computer infected by so nasty
program. I know that it work on XP and Vista systems though. Most of
my driver and software install CDs no longer automatically run after I
place them into the drive.
Music and Video discs are exempt from this security option, but I did
not hear anything about game discs.
I think I remember Drew was one thinking about having a distribution
disc auto-play, or some term describing the following: Place the disc
in the drive, computer reads the disc auto-play file[s], package
determines what OS you have installed, then it asks you if you want to
install the proper package for your system's OS. Windows install
shown for Windows systems, Mac Intel or PPC if it was one of those,
DEB or RPM for the Linux systems. At least that was my opinion on
what he was thinking a few months back. That would be nice for some
people with limited computer skills, but could be a dangerous security
issue for others.
Personally, I would prefer not having a software package "auto play"
when I place the disc into my drive. I may want to browse the disk
instead of installing the default software.
For the "distribution CD/DVD" I like the option to either open the
HTML files in my default browser, OR just browse the disc to see what
all it on it. For those who need help and guidance, having the
install information and what is one the disk, spelled out by using
easy to use browser-based pages is useful. Also for those who know
what is on the disc and just needs to read some documentation file or
install a dictionary or other add-on, having the choice it important.
