I have a u3 drive - (£15.99 Sandisk Cruzer 1Gb, not bad!) and am impressed by the u3 launcher etc, but wondered if it is really true that normal flash disks don't auto play - I am sure that they normally try to auto play - if you put an autoplay.inf file on them doesn't it open it? Essentially what is the point of having a special u3 drive if you could replicate this functionality on a normal disk?
Secondarily, what is a good replacement for the u3 launcher? I had a quick look at pstart, but its not that amazing looking etc... are there any other options?
