Declaration

- (NSArray *)mountNewRemovableMedia;

Return Value

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.
