First question.

I have a 60gig external 3.5" hard drive device would it be possible to make a batch file which will scan a computers %systemdrive% for music,movies,documents,photos, and copy them to the usb hd?

Second question can you use autorun on a cd to execute a .exe files when the cd enters the drive? if so how is this done?

Many thanks

First Anwser:

Yeah, its possible, but you know, that this takes probably a long time...

CHECK THIS THREAD

:: Possible Batch file
@echo off
start /wait fc.exe "%systemroot%*.avi" ".Movies" /I
start /wait fc.exe "%systemroot%*.jpg" ".Pictures" /I
exit

Second answer:

U want to execute a App from a cd when you insert the disc into the drive..

U have to write a autorun.inf file, and store it on root of the disc.

Simple:

[autorun]
icon=icon.ico
open=launch.exe

CHECK MSFN FOR autorun.inf SYNTAX DESCRIPTION
