The primary purpose of Autoplay is to provide a software response to hardware actions initiated by the user on the machine. The Autoplay feature remained roughly the same from WindowsÂ® 95 though Windows 2000 and Windows Millennium Edition (Me) because up until recently there have been very few new scenarios with regard to user-initiated hardware events that could trigger a useful Autoplay action. But lately, with the spread of digital multimedia content (music, graphics, and video) and of the many devices to generate or consume that content, many new scenarios are begging for Autoplay to grow. Windows XP reflects the rapid growth of consumer multimedia with an expanded Autoplay feature. In addition to refining the existing Autorun.INF mechanism, audio CD Autoplays, and DVD video Autoplay, support has been added to handle digital music (WMA/MP3), graphics, video, CD burning, video cameras, and other hardware devices.
