An AppleScript to mount, run, unmount a disk image
Authored by: rhithyn on Sep 08, '04 10:03:55AM

One problem:

This will only eject disks that are visible in the desktop view. I have set the name of my mail volume to ".Mail" to keep it off of my desktop, but still have all other mounted images show up. Whenever I try to eject the volume using Finder's "eject" command, it says it can't find the volume, although it is in the disk list.

Any ideas on how to make the finder eject hidden volumes?

The script at the top of this story (the original hint) ejects hidden disks because it doesn't use the finder to mount or unmount them - it uses shell scripts.

I should have clarified that I was commenting on Christian Leue's script and not on the original script. Sorry!
