How can I get automator to select an encrypted disk image, select a bunch of files in a specified folder, and then move said files to the disk image. Every time i try it in automator, it fails! Is this just not possible with automator? I selected the mount disk image script but then when I use the "move specified finder items" function, it does not moveinto the disk image which is already mounted!

Can you post the script?

Also, have you tried doing everything manually? Are you sure that the image isn't read only(or getting mounted as read only?)
