Hi James,

Is the CD only ever intended for Mac use? If it's going to be used on a PC,
this old post from Muzak should help you:
Q: how do you make a CD autorun with my own icon?

Make a Standalone Projector (.exe) of your Flash movie (File > Publish
settings). Then make an autorun.inf file, in Notepad or any
plain texteditor, with the following two lines in it:


There's no need to specify a drive (e.g. D:\...) but if your Projector file
is not in the root of the CD, you have to specify the
path to the folder it is in. (e.g. open=somefolder\yourfile.exe)
Put both files (yourfile.exe and autorun.inf) on the CD, and that's it.
If you want to use a specific icon for the CD-drive when your CD is
inserted, you can add this line to the autorun.inf file:


I don't know how you'd do this for a Mac CD :(
