SyscoKid is right, however not everyone has windows installed on the C drive.
Autorun.inf is ONLY capable of running executables (i.E .EXE .COM .VBS ... files)
You will need a third party software to do what you want to do. Just search the Internet, there is tons of free/shareware for that purpose.
