Autostart for Firefox on CD-R

Hello everybody.

I've got the problem that it seems not possible for me to start PortableFirefoxLive from a cd-r using autostart.

I'd like to have Firefox starting on putting the cd-r into a drive. So I got the edited firefox.ini to run Firefox from a cd-r, copied the whole stuff to the root of the cd-r and used the following string in the autostart.inf:

[autorun]
open=FirefoxPortable.exe
icon=sicon.ico

So, if I put the cd-r in any computer nothing happens, only the dataexplorer pops up and shows me the content of the cd-r ... that's it.
It seems that the loader does not start. If I start it by doubleclick everything is fine.

So what's the fault? Any hints for me?

Greetings and thanks...

i tried it over here and it works.
my pogo cd uses that and it starts automaticlly
without me touching the mouse and same with firefox portable on cd

try this
[autorun]
START=\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe

and save it as autorun.inf in the root of the cd
(when u click on the cd drive put the autorun file there)

problem solved

starting the brain before doing something is quite good ...

it was my exclusive fault ... i named the autostart-file 'autoSTART.inf' instead of 'autoRUN.inf' ... so now everthing is working fine.

thanks for your time!!
