Windows 7: Can I run a .bat on my hard drive when I insert a DVD movie?

Can I run a .bat on my hard drive when I insert a DVD movie?

I though that I could just go to the autoplay settings and choose to run a program when a DVD movie is inserted, but alas I can only chose to play it or open it with windows explorer. I did a google search as well as here on sevenforums and it seems to be a pretty hard thing to do. Maybe there is a little third party application I can use?

I have a .bat file on my c drive that I want to run each time I put a DVD movie into my computer DVD drive.

Thanks in advance

You could follow this tutorial. Tested. Works on windows 7.
Just sure to "Run as administrator"

Thank you rustberger for the idea. I gave it a try, however the application won't let you add a bat file to the autoplay menu. See pictures. Maybe there is a way to change a bat file to an exe file? Thanks for the suggestion.

Just type the path for your bat file in the Application box.
