Question Autoplay

Hi all

i got another little problem. I was fixing up a computer for this weird person thats really lazy. he wanted me to make all his cds autoplay and or be accessible with one click... i managed to autoplay most of the stuff until i had to autoplay the Video CDs.

the problems seems to be that the files that we have to play in VCDs are not in the main folder but in the MPEGAV folder. Which would result in autoplay only opening the main folder *aka E:\ in my case*

Does anyone have any recommandations to how i might resolve this? I heard that using aother program instead of windows media player Might help..

thank you.
