I know that W7 has disabled the autorun feature by default when you insert a EHD if a Autorun.inf in the root folder, but plugging in the drive still caused the AutoPlay dialog to appear, Pictures and General options were listed in the dialog. I don't want to disable it from Control Panel, is there a way to write a simple file(like autorun.inf) in the root folder to disable showing the AutoPlay feature for the EHD? Thanks in advance.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

In short, no, at least not with an autorun file.

Windows 7 disables the autorun.inf functionality, but AutoPlay will continue to operate as normal unless you disable it or choose "Always do this" when plugging it in.
