No need to maunally mount
Authored by: tung on Apr 14, '02 11:57:12AM

Brought a taiwan made external Harddisk box which can use either USB 1.1 or firewire (designed for both Win PC and Mac, i.e. with USB drivers for windows and Mac OS 9.1 or above)

Of course I connect via firewire,
a few seconds later, a firewire icon appear on desktop with name of my harddisk volumn name
so I use Finder and ....
I can read the file on my Win98 harddisk right away ....
no need to do anything like "sudo mount_msdos" ....

nothing, just connect and read ...

is it new features of OSX 10.1.3 ?
or it is some magic circuit in the taiwan made harddisk box ?

This works on FAT16 disks (under 2GB).
I just got a 20GB Firewire drive, and experienced the same problem...
