DVD Question

Post by BobH »

I have an instructional DVD. It does not autorun when loaded in the drive. I can see the files with File Explorer (or whatever the app is called today) but can't suss out the one to try and load. When I select autorun.inf I get its text displayed
:scratch:

Have you tried playing it in Windows Media Player, VLC Player or the like?

Does the .inf file text point to the .exe or run file? If it does seem to do so, click on that file directly. What happens?
Will any other DVD run with autorun?

The box and hammers and the box of rocks are firmly in charge this morning.

I tried the suggestions and in doing so noticed that there are separate MP4 files. Doubling clicking any one of them runs the video.
