Autorun.inf Editor for Autoplay CD

The Autorun.inf Editor is a program that can be used to quickly and easily create the files that tell an autorun (also known as "autoplay") CD to automatically play upon insertion into a CD-ROM drive. This "autorun.inf" file is required when creating an autorun CD, since it is the file which signals the computer that the CD is autorun-enabled. When a CD is put into the drive, the operating system looks for the autorun.inf file. If the file exists, it reads the file and then knows how to "autoplay" the CD. There are a number of things you can do with an autorun.inf file.
