so i can make this in vb? right?


The AUTORUN.INF file is just a simple script/INI file which tells Windows what to do when the CD is inserted - you can make it start the .exe of one of your programs just by specifying the path name in that file. If your games are .EXE files (or similar - i.e. you can double click the file and it will run) then you can put that name in the AutoRun file.

Take a look at the above MSDN link. Also find any CD that autoruns already - look in the root for the AUTORUN.INF file - open that file in Notepad and you''ll see how simple and easy it is to use.
