Recycld.exe and autorun.inf - can I save anyt

Microsoft Windows xp home edition

Specs: Windows XP Home
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me. Almost a month ago about my computer started giving me unopenable files instead of usb devices. Well, it's been in the shop since then. As far as I can tell, it had (and quite possibly still has) the Recycld.exe virus. There is an autorun.inf file on my external hard drive and flash drive and I cannot seem to get my mp3 player to work.

The repair guy wrote a script and installed a program (Autorun Eater) that stops the autorun.inf file from running so it's working almost like normal - apart from the mp3 player not working, which I believe is a driver that I don't know how to install but that's neither here nor there.

What I want to know is, is there any way to save my files so that they can be transferred to another computer? I am worried that simply burning them to a dvd would include the autorun onto the disk and just continue the problem onto a new system. Can it be in jpeg files, movie files (some tutorials I downloaded from online, totally free and before this fiasco virus free as well) or in the mp3s? Should I get a different mp3 player to use if I get a new computer, since this one has been and will be plugged into the infected one?

Does anyone have any advice?

(PS: Computer details: The computer in question is an IBM Thinkpad Laptop running Windows XP, I believe it is now running home edition if that matters.)

get a usb to hard drive cable,
