Two CD/DVD roms - AutoPlay/launch seperate software for audio CD's

Is it possible to configure Windows 7 to automagically launch and play audio in, e.g WMP if audio CD is inserted in CD rom A, and iTunes if audio CD is inserted in CD rom B?

No, I believe that the association is with the disc type, not with the drive letter.

Though your question raises my question: Why do you want to use two different media players?

I thought it may be doable with task scheduler but I could not find any options for it. You may be able to find a 3rd party program to do that but with whats its asking more than likely it will not be free.

surely if the drives are set to always ask ,then the autoplay will give you the option as to whichever player to use. its not the same as it running automatically but hey!

I have two livingrooms next to each other and want to use my HTPC as a simple zone divider. To do so I simply assosiates iTunes with one audio output that is not the default output.

That's awesome.

Unfortunately, I think you will have to use boohbah's method. It's one extra step, but it will achieve what you want it to.

Is "always ask" the only way to go here?
Surely there must be a way to manipulate Windows for this.
I don't have the skills to to so, but I should think that it's possible to write a script that could do this.
Anyone?

Do the same thing I would have to do pick up a book on programming C+ and includes how to write dll's

Im sorry, that comment did seem rude.

I did not mean for it to be.


Ummm,
I know there are several companies that create programs for internal use and release them for purchase I would tunnel through your favorite search engine of choice and maybe you can find something...

Another option which would be a huge pain is to take each cd. and create an autorun file for each of them and burn them to a new disk.... but it would function :S
