Windows 7: Software to execute USB-stick when connected.

Software to execute USB-stick when connected.

Hey guys.

I had an idea and was wondering if it was possible or not.

Is it possible to take a USB-stick and format it in a way so when it's connected to a Windows 7 PC (the same pc) it's content is automatically executed? Without asking the user what should be done.

What i would like to execute is a x.m4a file. Or any other media format filetype.

The request has no malicious purpose.

I was not sure where on the forum to put this. To it ended in software.

Thanks on advance.
Kind regards.

For your computer:
Control panel - AutoPlay.
Check Use AutoPlay for all media and devices.
Then Audio files - select your player.

In Windows 7 you can also do something called Autorun with dvd/cd (not USB stick) .
