...yes, I do mean "replace".
The U3 Launchpad is able to start automatically when a U3 USB drive is inserted because the drive's firmware emulates a CD. Apparently, Windows XP doesn't process autorun.inf from a 'regular' USB drive.
I have my reasons for disliking the U3 platform, but that's off topic here. Ideally, I'd like to bypass the U3 Launchpad altogether in favor of PStart...but how do I get PStart to start without first starting the Launchpad?
There may be a way, but I need your help.
When you open the second drive letter created by a U3 USB drive, you see it has the autorun.inf file that starts the Launchpad. What if I were to edit the autorun.inf and have it point to PStart instead?
It's probably not that simple, which is why I need the input of someone more knowledgable than I.
I would experiment with it myself, but I'm afraid of messing up and killing the drive.
So...what do you think?
