Need to make USB thumb drives open an explorer folder

I would like to have any usb thumb drive I insert into my desktop pc make an explorer window open automatically (to that drive of course). Is there a way to make this happen?

Thanks!

I don't think Windows can do that, but this program can Desk Drive - Mike Ward I have used it in the past.

Is "autoplay" active? I mean if you insert a usb stick with a game installer it starts automatically, just like inserting a CD?

BTW "autorun" on usb sticks has been removed in Windows 7. Otherwise a program could start automatically.... and can install a virus without interaction
