It will not work with all removable devices. When I did my work related to this, my very own iPod Mini would not work with the autorun.inf, even though I had windows set to check and run autorun.inf files from all devices possible.
But to my dismay, a beta tester had no problem using the autorun.inf from a usb memory stick. And from resulting discussions with other developers, I found that it was a hit and miss deal, basically depending on hardware issues and os related issues.
So I would say that the autorun.inf would not be reliable in this setting.
