Software :: Automatically Open Finder Window For USB?

Aug 24, 2010

I've got this problem that I need to try and solve for a client at work. They've got us to design a sort of media player application in Flash that allows the user to select any of their project videos to watch.

Now, the problem. They want this application to be distributed on a USB stick. They also want the application to automatically run when the USB is plugged in. Now, on Windows machines, this is easy enough. My problem is that I have no idea how to do this on a Mac.

I'm aware that Macs don't have the same AutoRun capabilities as Windows does. What I'm wondering, in the absence of being able to run the application automatically, is it possible to have Finder automatically open up a new window to the directory where the app is stored? Or, better yet, is it possible for Finder to automatically open up some sort of customized window (similar to the ones that pop up when you run an installer package), that just provides a shortcut to the application?

Obviously I need the solution to be common across multiple computers (so any solution that involves changing system settings or the like isn't really useful for me).

Is what I'm trying to do even possible? My knowledge is limited on the matter. I'm actually a video editor. Don't ask me why I've been put in charge of doing this, because I'm sort of wondering that myself.

OS X :: Disk Image Won't Open Automatically Since Last Security Update

Nov 17, 2010

I am using OS 10.5.8.

In the past, I could double click on my disk image file (secure.sparseimage) and it would procede to ask for password and then open.

Since the last security update, when I double click on the same file, it opens disk utility. I then have to double click on the secure.sparseimage file in the left pane.

I checked disk utility preferences and it is still set to automatically open both read only and read and write disk images.

Anyone have the same experience and possibly an explanation or solution?

Applications :: Want Vuze To Automatically Open When Torrent Is Downloaded?

Jan 15, 2009

If I download a torrent in firefox vuze automatically opens (because that's what I have set it to do under the application tab in preferences). But I'm using safari, as my primary browser, and I would like for safari to associate torrents with vuze/transmission in the same way.

When I download a torrent from, say, mininova the torrent is downloaded to my downloads folder and is visible in the safari download window (with the azureus icon) - but I manually have to open the torrent for vuze to start downloading. So the torrent is associated to vuze, but it doesn't automatically start downloading.

Applications :: Open A Webpage With A Video File Without It Playing Automatically?

Oct 24, 2010

I recently "upgraded" to Snow Leopard and Quicktime X. Since then, there has been one increasingly annoying problem: Anytime a webpage has a movie (more specifically, a movie with its own URL), it opens it up with QT in the browser and automatically starts playing the movie. Despite deleting QT X and reverting to QT 7, the problem persists, no matter the browser (I have 4).

So 2 questions:1. Why is it that this was NOT a problem at all in Tiger (simply disabled the autoplay in QT, worked for everything), but is a huge problem in Snow Leopard?

2. More importantly, how do I fix it without writing a Terminal script that is the length of War and Peace?

PowerPC :: DVD / CDRW - Drive Automatically Open When System Turned On

Nov 26, 2006

I retrofitted a Toshiba dvd/cdrw 2512 in my indigo ibook, following instructions found online. Opens fine with f12 key, and drilled hole for paperclip eject if need. Plays dvds and burns cds great (patchburn installed to burn from itunes too). But, the drive also opens when the ibook is turned on and when it comes out of sleep. Is this a glitch that can be fixed. Not a big deal but would like to have it not open if possible.

IMac :: Computer Goes Into Sleep And Wake Up Automatically

Dec 15, 2009

I had my iMac 27" for two months, and I am very pleased with the machine - except for one thing. When I put it to sleep, the computer just go to sleep in a couple of hours and then return to no-sleep. It started just after I bought the computer. I always set my computer to sleep, and so I did even then - but the first thing I noticed was that the hard drive was started during the first night. Strangely, I thought and put it to sleep again. Then I fell asleep, but when I woke up next morning the computer was on.

Then I wrote on another forum and they told me to check out: Wake up in network access, which I did. And then it got better. Now the computer has been without problems for a month, but then a few days ago it came back. This box is still check, so it can not have anything to do with it this time. I've also tried turning off all programs, the keyboard and mouse when it has gone down to sleep, but it still restarted. What is wrong? Please run with Sleep and it is a program that will prevent the computer to wake from sleep, but not:

2009-12-14 00:12:00.870 Please Sleep [8574:207] Sleep notification received from the system

What can I do? Can I submit it to Applecare? Some peoples say you do not have to turn off a Mac, but I want to put it to sleep, but it starts up the next day. I've also restarted the SMC, but it gave no effect.

Hardware :: IMac G5 Automatically Goes To Sleep Mode?

Mar 5, 2009

My iMac G5 (OSX 10.4) starts up as normal, runs for about 5 minutes and then automatically goes to sleep. It will wake up if prompted, but every time it goes back to sleep in seconds. If left in sleep mode for a few minutes it will wake up again for 1 � 5 minutes before once again automatically returning to sleep.

It is definitely not due to hot corners. I changed the power saver settings several times, restarted and also reset the SMU but with no luck. I�ve also ran an apple hardware test which got the fallowing error code: �2FAN/4/8: CPU Fan�

Anything else I can try besides taking it in to an Apple service provider?

IMac PPC :: Make It Automatically Index A USB Drive?

Jun 13, 2012

When I connect a USB drive, it shows up on my desktop, but Finder won't find anything on it because it doesn't get indexed. I'm running OS X 10.5.8 (9L31a) on an iMac G5 with a PowerPC G5 (3.0) processor. The drive in question is NTFS, but it also seems like the Mac doesn't index FAT-formatted USB drives if they were formatted on a PC. Is there any way that automatic indexing could have been turned off?  I think the department that had this system before we got it would have turned that off if possible, and I'd like to find out how to turn it back on?

IMac :: Magic Mouse Automatically Scrolls Down Quarter Of Way

Aug 3, 2010

I've been playing with my new iMac for 3 days now and I am still at awe. It's my first Mac. It's a completely different experience from a Vista. However, there is a minor, but quite irritating issue. I don't know if it's with the iMac or the magic mouse (which I've got comfortable with) but any web page I go to, it automatically scrolls down almost a quarter of the way. I've tried different surfaces. Happens all the time. Just as I start reading something, it scrolls down and I've to scroll back up and it would do it again.
