    USB to play video like a DVD (WinXP Pro SP2)

    I have tried, and failed so wonder if this might not be possible.

    I do not have easy access to the PC this will run on ultimately but I will follow up on that. I PC I am trying to get this to work on is XP Pro SP2.

    I have a DVD with a number of video tracks. I have copied these tracks to a USB flash drive. So the directory structure is
    D:
    Audio_TS
    (empty)
    Video_TS
    Video_TS.BUP
    Video_TS.IFO
    Video_TS.VOB
    VTS_01_0.BUP
    VTS_01_0.IFO
    VTS_01_0.VOB
    VTS_01_1.VOB
    …etc until…
    VTS_05_0.BUP
    VTS_05_0.IFO
    VTS_05_0.VOB
    VTS_05_1.VOB

    I would like to be able to set this up so that the tracks play automatically when the device is plugged in.

    I NEED to be able to play these tracks in a continuous loop.

    It well it would be nice to find freeware but I, or the boss, will pay if necessary.

    You might try Autorun USB. It says it's shareware, but I don't see any price information on the site.

    Thanks, Doc.

    I have looked at this and it does half the job I need. I should have mentioned that the main object is so have the video/s auto run on any PC. AutorunUSB requires you to install the software on a PC and then it works THAT PC.

    But the site you linked me to looks useful and it is one I haven't visited before. So that is a gain in itself.

    Thanks, Allan.

    I will take a look at these. For some reason our corporate IT have the irst site blocked. And I never think to check Wkikpedia, must be my old age. ;-)
