Response to: RE: Overide iPhoto startup when mounting disc?

What about changing the setting of "When you insert a picture CD" under "CDs and DVDs" in System Preferences? I haven't burned a disk from iPhoto yet so I can't confirm that works.


Thanks for the tips, Derrick. I'm less hesitant to burn a disk now that I have more background on the entire process, with knowledge of the loss of film roll info.

    Changing the 'When I insert a picture CD' pop-up to 'ignore' does allow an iPhoto burned disc to mount without launching iPhoto. I had forgotten that preference pane. I recall thinking that preference pertained to the KODAK photo CD standard.
    Now I wonder what constitutes an iPhoto disc. Burning plain Finder folders of image files does not kick start iPhoto when they are mounted, even with the preference set to 'Open iPhoto'. I'll test burning a disc (volume) titled 'iPhoto Disc' from the Finder; and burning an iPhoto Library folder from the Finder.
    That would allow my slideshow program to be included on the archive cd; that is how I originally wanted it to work. When you mount the archive its icon is there at the top level. THANKS for the input. Tony
