    ....well almost.

    I am having a problem mounting anything other than CD's/DVD's. SMB's give an error 36 while DMG's and any external drives give no error at all but just do not mount (they don't show up in disk util either).

    I have tried logging into my admin account thinking the problem was just with my user account but I get the same problems. I also tried creating a new account (in a fit of wild optimism) but again nothing. I have also tried resetting perms and the other scripts in Onyx but still no joy.

    I am hoping that the problem is something simple as I would hate to lose my itunes podcast files (the only things not backed up of course!) so any help would be welcome.

    Cheers

    I had a problem with disk images as well, the only difference was that I couldn't unmount anything!

    Have you tried restarting your computer? It worked for me...

    Sorted. Ended up doing a re-install with the keep current accounts option and everything works fine now. I am guessing I deleted or moved something within the system that I should not have.
