Launch video/dvd/cd/audio via any drive letter
MediaLaunch for RoadRunner
Looks at defined drive letters trying to find playable media(VIDEO/AUDIO) from USB/CD/DVD/and any other drive letter. Autoplay/reload previous playlist/load media skin options. Returns to exact playlist position after playing audio (thanks John and LS) is optional. This started as a modification of JohnWPB's script (thanks again John). It's meant to have a single media type on a given drive (just like a audio CD is Audio and a DVD is Video). The default is set to ignore mixed media drives(optional). A DVD full of audio, CD with video files, USB with audio or video, etc... Oh and a normal DVD and CD work too. This is an exact fit for my needs, hopefully someone else may find it useful. I'm new to autoit scripts so beware :)
Extract the ZIP, look at the Readme.txt to install.
This is communicated to RR from the script about the media it detects (the number 1 is the first drive it's scanning, handles up to 7)

just so i have got this right
the play/exit prompt, dose this appear when media has been found in a drive, and it will ask you to play or exit. if so , if i load a media disc in the drive which is in the boot of the car,and i don't want to listen to it straight away the play / exit buttons will appear and i can exit. but how do i return to the disc when i wnat to play it.
having a media skin sounds like the way to go. you can have a window that shows what is in the drive, and buttons down the side of it to choose from. ie.
play media / stop media/ eject media/
this way you can return to the media in the drive's as many times as you wish.
you can set a button in your skin to launch media script and open the media skin.
just a very quick skin making here to give you an idea,the play buttons can be obtained via the script i think, i know the media copy skin i use dose, it loads the drives it see's in the my computer and refreashies everytime i enter that skin, same with the window ,
Just hit the drive letter to play the media, use the scroll buttons at the side to selct drive to stop or eject.
the skin image you see is a copy ver. of johns digitalfx skin ,i'm using his .psd's from blue devil skin that are easy to obtain.
not 1 to change things but i hope its and idea for you.
