What have you got in the autorun.inf file? Paste the entire contents here. :)

It should be:

[autorun]
open=test\flash.exe

keep in mind that Microsoft put out a patch just the other week that changed the way autorun works.

the basic deal is that autorun can now be turned on/off in a device by device kind of way.
