Quick and easy process to create CD/DVD menus with custom colors and images, simple menus and more, with this lightweight application.
Every good product needs to be equipped with at least a small presentation, because not everyone has the time to take it for a spin. The same goes for applications and media found on discs. If you want to build a menu yourself, 4Menu basic CD front end is a reliable application with which to create a simple menu for the content of any type of CD.
When the download session is finished, and it doesn't take a lot of time because the package is light, you're free to edit necessary items and burn a CD. It's recommended to go ahead and run it because it's equipped with a sample to give you an idea of what can be accomplished.
All instructions are found in the corresponding read-me file. Editing takes incredibly little effort and can only mean copying the files you want the application to use. On the other hand, you can take your time in order to tweak a few visual settings, but this can take some getting used to.
Thorough editing is possible but takes some skills and programming knowledge. This is because of the difficult process that requires you to manually write down all changes you want to make. In other words, modifying fields in the given INI file only changes colors, but with a little imagination, you can create your own menu style.
The main menu displays all items it finds inside the data directory. Be careful to name them as you want them to appear in the menu, just so everything looks neat. When you're done with editing, all that's left is to burn all files to a CD and try it out. However, this is also possible with larger optical disks and even USB Flash drives thanks to the autorun.ini file inside the package.
Bottom line is that 4Menu basic CD front end is a straightforward solution to create simple menus for optical disks or USB drives. Customization is not mandatory, but if you do happen to have a burning desire to change everything, it can take some time and practice. It would have been useful to see at least a simple way to edit color and background options in an easier way and without programming knowledge.

In the same folder, you need to make a new directory that you dub Media where you copy all the files you would like to include in the list.
In the eventuality that you want to change the order of the files from the newly playlist created, then you can do so from the plain text file that is created along with your list.

Design autorun interfaces for CDs or DVDs with this application that offers numerous tools for inserting flash screens, pictures, sounds, HTML or RTF.
Note: The app is no longer supported, so it is now impossible to purchase the application. Nonetheless, you can still download it from Softpedia and use it with the limitations listed on this page
A useful piece of software that will help users who wish to create and customize their own autorun interfaces for CDs / DVSs. AutoRun Design features an accessible editing interface with a lot of useful functions and it provides the necessary tools to shape and refine the autorun interface to the requirements of average users.
Having a straightforward interface and basic looks, AutoRun Design could be the right choice for users who are passionate and are just making contact into the autorun menu creation field. Providing plenty of tools for inserting various content and defining the characteristics of the autoplay interface, AutoRun Design might be sufficient for the needs of basic users. However, although it offers a good degree of adjustment for the characteristics of the individual objects, it does lack more advanced options in the main menus and advanced users will not be pleased with this aspect.
AutoRun Design features a main window where users can preview the elements of the autorun interface and a side panel where the individual objects can be edited in terms of cursor aspect, sounds, images, hint, transparency, etc. A built-in wizard for the autorun creation is available and users benefit from numerous hints and suggestions presented in it to help them choose the content characteristics that best fit their preferences. Several types of content are supported by the application and users can choose to insert labels, buttons, scrolling text, images, videos and even embedded media players. In an attempt to help users with their workflow, AutoRun Design offers direct access to some common Windows features like Explorer, Notepad, Wordpad or Paint.
Offering a decent set of tools for creating and editing CD / DVD autorun interfaces, this software solution will be welcomed by users who are just making contact with this domain. On the other hand, AutoRun Design could have benefited from improvements to its crude interface and rough, unfinished aspect or more importantly and the lack of more advanced menus. Demanding users will not find it satisfactory and will probably seek for more comprehensive solutions in similar software packages.
