Question: On Mac OS X 10.13, CDROM auto launch is broken

I created an ISO file using the Titanium Toast v11 tool on Mac OS X 10.6. When this ISO file is loaded on the device, the auto-mount and auto-launch happens on all Mac OS X versions from 10.6 to 10.12. However, on Mac OS X 10.13, ONLY the auto-mount is working, but, the auto-launch is NOT happening. Any clue regarding the root cause of this issue? Is this a known issue on Mac OS X 10.13?


Troubleshooting steps tried are as below.

- Tried using hdiutil makehybrid command-line tool, but this did NOT auto-launch on any Mac OS X version.

- Tried using the Disk Utility GUI tool to create a .cdr file, then, used hdiutil makehybrid command-line tool to create the ISO file. Same result here, it did NOT auto-launch on any Mac OS X version.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, macOS High Sierra (10.13)

It seems like that wouldn't be a good feature for security purposes. If your computer has a superdrive or other similar relic you can edit the settings in System Preferences under sharing or the CD menu nib for what happens when a CD or DVD is inserted. Also I think there's a similar option in DVD player and maybe iTunes too.
