Instance Method

mountNewRemovableMedia

Returns the full pathnames of any newly mounted disks.

Declaration

- (NSArray *)mountNewRemovableMedia;

Return Value

An array of NSString objects, each of which contains the full pathname to a newly mounted disk.

Discussion

This method polls the system’s drives for any disks that have been inserted but not yet mounted and waits until the new disks have been mounted. This method posts an NSWorkspaceDidMountNotification to the NSWorkspace object’s notification center when it is finished. Currently provides the same functionality as mountedRemovableMedia.
