Hello, I recently got given a new TDK USB flash drive, the drive has encryption software on it called Flash Lock what flash lock does is divides the drive up in to two partitions, one locked and one unlocked so when I plug the drive into a computer I get access to the locked partition I can then open the flash lock programme (located inside the locked partition) type my password and when done the Flash Lock programme opens up the unlocked partition.
What I have been trying to do is create an auto run file that automatically executes the Flash Lock programme I have managed to get it working on my Windows Vista laptop nicely but it does not work on any Windows XP computer.
Here are the codes:
label=George's Flash Drive - Locked
label=George's Flash Drive - Unlocked
And these are the Auto Play windows that I get:
(for some reason the flash lock programme has not shown up in this window)
Can you please help me to get auto play working on Windows XP. Thank you for taking your time to read this long post!

It could be an issue with XP drivers, since I'm sure the drive is newer than XP. That's what the blank application symbol stands for on XP. Since it does it on multiple XP machines, it's bound to be a driver issue.
Another thing, does this encryption program install on the available PC that you plug it into, or run straight off the drive? That would make a big difference, especially with XP.
Are all these copies of XP all the way up-to-date?
PS. When in Vista and you're trying to open the unlocked partition, the reason I think the program selector is not showing up is, it can detect what program it needs to run in order open the partition. Since it's unlocked, it knows it doesn't need anything special. You can always close that out and use the properties, right?
This is strange. You might want to play around with the autorun settings. Here's an article on how to access them. http://www.winbookcorp.com/_technote/WBTA20000846.htm
