10.5: Eject stubborn disk images via AppleScript
Authored by: auco on May 21, '08 01:26:38PM

Unfortunately this script didn't work for me. It returned that the "resource is busy" ;-(

However, there's a simple command to force eject very stubborn disks (maybe a little bit more safely than simply unplugging)

in Terminal type:
hdiutil eject -force /Volume/volumeNameHere

10.5: Eject stubborn disk images via AppleScript

I was under the impression that eject (synonym for detach) requires a device name. Does it also work with a /Volumes path?
