Software :: Icon For Blank CD Does Not Show Up On Desktop?

Jan 9, 2006

I have a user who inserts a blank CD in internal drive and it won't show up on desktop, but does show up in disk utiility and can be ejected thru disk utiility. System is 10.3.9.

If we insert a CD with data on it, NAV scans and it shows up right away on desktop. Only happens with blank CDs. And yes, this is a DVD-RW and CD-RW drive.

I trashed Finder prefs and rebooted machine, same issue. Has anyone seen this and if so, got an answer?

Hardware :: WD 1TB Does Not Show Up Desktop/finder?

Feb 10, 2010

I have been using WD 1TB external USB hard disk for 4 months with my Macbook with Tiger 10.4 on it. I have plugged in the disk after I purchased without any special formatting or anything, and it worked fine so far. It just took a while, about few minutes, for the Macbook to show it on the desktop every time I got it disconnected and connected again. However, this time, I can not see the disk on the desktop nor on the Finder no matter what. I have plugged it in and out several times, I have restarted the machine etc. Nothing works. The disk is quite empty and it works fine with the PC..no cable problem or and disk failure issue for sure. I can see the disk on the Disk Utility app, but I can neither verify nor mount it...

MacBook Pro :: Why Did Duplicate Icon Of Hard Drive Show Up On Desktop

Aug 20, 2014

MacBook Pro; 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3; OS X 10.6.8.

The Issue is a duplicate icon of the hard drive appeared on the desktop this AM upon startup.

I don't know what caused it. It just appeared.

It seems to contain everything the start up icon contains when I open it.

I moved it to the trash, but did not erase the trash. I chickened out, so to speak. I removed back to the desktop.

I have the desktop view set to arrange by date modified. It appears approximately half way down the list of icons showing on the desktop. It seems to me that, if it is a duplicate, and by all appearances it is, then it should appear immediately after the real hard drive icon.

May 30, 2012

I am trying to get pictures off an SD card that I have in a card reader, plugged into the USB port.  I'm not finding an icon for this anywhere!  I've tried 2 card readers, as well as plugging my camera right into the USB port, and none of them show up!  It was working just find 2 days ago, and now it's not.  The USB port shows up in System Profiler, but not in Disk Utility.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Click Finder Icon On Dock ≠ New Finder Window?

May 22, 2012

Wasn't this an option previous to 10.7.4? It doesn't work now.When clicking the Finder icon in the Dock, a new Finder window would open? I know about Finder prefs - General - Always open folders in new window but this isn't what I mean.I'd have a Finder window open then want to copy/move something so I clicked on the Finder icon in the dock to get a new window.Every time I clicked the Dock icon, I'd get a new Finder window.

MacBook Pro :: Why Does Desktop Show An Excel Icon Labeled "6EE8A700"

May 3, 2012

I have a MacBook Pro running 10.7.3 and Office 2011. A strange thing is that on my desktop I am getting an Excel icon, as though I had a file on my desktop.  It is named "6EE8A700". If I right click on "Get Info" it returns nothing.  I cannot move the icon to another place on my desktop.  If I try to delete it I get the response "The item “6EE8A700” can’t be moved to the Trash because it can’t be deleted."  If I close Excel, even force quit Excel, it still is there. This icon is not always here but has no correlation to whether Excel is running or not.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Show In Finder In Every App

Mar 30, 2012

I have this weird and annoying problem with "show in finder".I used at one point that "defaults write -g NSFileViewer string different.plist.than.finder" to try to change the default finder, it didnt work, so I just "defaults delete -g NSFileViewer". So this is out of the way, I have no NSFileViewer in any file whatsoever.Now, for the weird stuff. If I use "show in finder" from the dock, nothing happens(neither cmd-click, of course). If I use it in safari's download list, it OPENS the file. If I use it in iTunes, on media or apps, it WORKS properly, it shows the item in the finder. If I use it in Xcode on a file in my project, it just switches to that file(so, basically, it just opens it just like Safari).

I tried deleting the dock and finder plist files in Preferences, didnt work. If I login with a different account it works properly. I really dont want to delete the whole preferences folder. I REALLY dont xD.I'm really stuck here, since all apps try and open the file(except Dock that does nothing) but iTunes works properly.if I use "Reveal in finder" in Spotify, it also opens the file(it starts to play in iTunes).if I use "Reveal in finder" in Forklift it just opens it as well.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Show All Folders In Finder, Terminal Command

Apr 29, 2012

When using finder and browsing through folders, it will only show me a list of recent folders. I use Lion. If I want to see all the folders or open up a less recent folder, I have to click "show all" at the top right hand corner. It gets tedious when I'm dragging and dropping files to different folders when I have to constantly click "show all" just to see the folders I want. Is there a way to override this function through the terminal? Is there a command I can use?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Won't External Drives Show Up On Desktop

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Permissions - Drives Do Not Show On Desktop?

May 29, 2012

Permissions Problem in Lion: Drives Do Not Show on Desktop I created a new Administrator account in Lion. When I log into this, neither my internal hard drive, nor the two external hard drives, show up on the desktop. I clicked on "Documents" in the dock when logged into this new account to get a window. Here, again the internal HD does not show up. 

1) The two external FW drives did show up this way

2) When I click on the various folders in the sidebar (Desktop, Downloads, Movie, Music, Pictures) I get a "the x folder cannot be opened cuz you do not have permissions" type error message.

3) Only "Applications" folder opens in the usual way from this approach. 

This problem occurs on both my work and my MBP computers, both of which were just upgraded to Lion.Disk Utility's "Repair Disk Permissions" command successfully completes, but the problem still persists.I'm having several weird program issues (e.g., Photoshop CS3 and FolderSynch do not run) that I think MIGHT be related to this.How did this happen with the upgrade to Lion? Most importantly, how do I fix it and get my permissions back to a normal state?

You can assign the application in the dock to a desktop. But can you hide the application in the dock in the desktop where it is not assigned? That is, the dock in each desktop should show only the app icons that are assigned to that desktop. Possible? Within OS X or via an app?
