How to make this script act immediately on connect?
Authored by: godo on Nov 24, '04 04:38:04PM

An alternative to using cron would be triggering this script with a Folder Action that checks whether a new item on the Desktop is the volume you want to act on.

The folder action approach might also solve the original poster's problem with his script - that when run as a cron job, the script will not unmount. There should be no problem doing this in Applescript.
